Getting your vaccine

LAST UPDATED:  Sept. 21, 2021

This page covers information about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Itis intended as a simple overview. The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), your local health authority and Health Canada are the best sources of current COVID-19 vaccine information.

Getting the vaccine

Vaccination clinics in your community

Drop-ins are now welcome at all VCH clinics on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on your eligibility and vaccine availability. People 12+ are eligible to be vaccinated and you are eligible for a second dose at 28 days after your first dose. Please monitor the vaccination clinic listings below for updated dates and locations.

While registration and booking using the provincial Get Vaccinated system is still encouraged, these clinics will allow eligible people to drop-in and receive a vaccine without a scheduled appointment.
