COVID-19 vaccine plan

Last updated: May 15, 2021, 8:00 pm

*This plan is subject to change. Due to the complexity of Northern geography, logistics, outbreaks, vaccine supply, and other factors, changes to timelines and the plan may be made as required.

The current immunization schedule developed for the North, in partnership with the First Nations Health Authority, Métis Nation BC, and Northern Health, is focused on phases one and two priority groups of BC's immunization plan (developed based on recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization), and on protecting those most vulnerable to severe illness, first. For more information on the vaccine and priority groups, visit the Government of BC website and the First Nations Health Authority website.

Booking your vaccine appointment

Registering for a vaccine appointment

  • Register now: If you're born in 2003 or earlier (age 18+),
  • Register now: Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) 18 years and older

This system has three simple steps:

Step 1: Register Step 2: Book an appointment Step 3: Get the vaccine

Register for COVID-19 vaccination graphic

First, you register and get a confirmation number. You need that number to later book your vaccination appointment. Registering also helps health authorities request the right amount of vaccine doses for each community.

Register online


Book appointment for COVID-19 vaccination graphic

Once you have registered, you will be notified when you become eligible to book an appointment. This is based on your age and the provincial Immunization Plan phases. Your notification will include instructions on how to book, which will be done online or by phone.


Get the vaccine for COVID-19 vaccination graphic

Visit the clinic to get your vaccine dose. People who get their first vaccine dose will be notified by email, text, or phone when they are eligible to book an appointment for their second dose.

Visit gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated for more information.

A provincial call centre (1-833-838-2323) is available for people who do not have a Personal Health Number or need additional support making an appointment. This service is available in 140 languages.

Or you can register in-person at the nearest Service BC location

You will need to provide your:

  • Legal first and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Post code
  • Personal health number (aka: care card)
  • An email address that gets checked regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages (a direct line to you or your support person)

Dose 2 appointments

You’ll get your second dose about 16 weeks after the first dose. If you registered on the province’s Get Vaccinated website, you'll be notified automatically when it's time for your second dose.

  • If you got your first dose before the provincial registration system was available, you need to register now at Get Vaccinated. That way, you’re in the system and you’ll get that notification when it’s time for your second dose.
  • If you’ve already registered, and you’ve already got your first dose, you’re in the system. You’ll be notified automatically when it’s time for your second dose. You don’t need to do anything else.

Note: If you signed up with a pharmacy or with your local health unit, this is not the same as registering with the provincial system. You should still register now at Get Vaccinated.

Notes about some Northern Health communities

  • Please find your community below for specific instructions. 
  • If you are in a community currently booking people ages 18+, you can either register and wait for a notification, or you can call the number listed in your community section below to book now.

AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine for people born in 1991 and earlier (age 30 and older)

Book directly at a participating pharmacy for an appointment. The participating pharmacies are listed on the BC Pharmacy Association website. Appointments for AstraZeneca cannot be booked through the NH COVID-19 vaccine appointment booking line. Find a pharmacy near you.

    How to prepare for your appointment:

    • Your appointment will take about 10 minutes, and we’ll ask you to wait for another 15 minutes before leaving the clinic.
    • Everyone who is immunized will receive an Immunization Record and After Care information and resources.
    • More info on what to expect when you get a COVID-19 vaccine is available on the BCCDC website.

    Reminder: Public health orders remain in effect for everyone, including those who have received their vaccine. Please continue to wear a mask, avoid non-essential travel and large gatherings, and practice good hand hygiene and physical distancing.

    An initial group of front-line priority workers have been invited to book a COVID-19 immunization appointment:

    • First responders (police, firefighters)
    • K-12 educational staff
    • Child care staff

    In Prince George and Quesnel, employers have received letters with booking instructions for the eligible priority groups. In all other Northern BC communities, everyone 18 years of age and older are already eligible to book an appointment once they register.

    Vaccinations for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable

    Some people with certain health conditions are at higher-risk from COVID-19 and have been identified as “clinically extremely vulnerable” (CEV). People in this group, aged 16-74, will be able to register for their COVID-19 vaccine starting on March 29, 2021, once they receive their letter.

    Those people identified as CEV will receive a letter in the mail in the coming days with information on how to book an appointment, beginning March 29, 2021. People who receive this invitation letter must bring it with them to their vaccination appointment.

    If you've been identified as CEV, learn more about the steps to book an appointment and get your COVID-19 vaccine.

    Expand

    When will I get the vaccine?

    Everyone in BC will have an opportunity to get the vaccine if they choose, but the first priority groups to receive the vaccine include those individuals who may be most vulnerable to serious illness and the individuals who care for them. The BC COVID-19 immunization plan is available on the Government of BC website.

    Following all priority groups, it's the Province's goal to be able to immunize all BC residents who want it by the end of September 2021. ​​​Until then, we all need to continue to protect each other by following public health orders and guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

    For more info, and frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19 immunization, please visit the Immunize BC website.
