Vaccine bookings to begin for 50+ over the next week
Everyone in the province 50 years and older (born 1971 or earlier) registered to get a COVID-19 vaccine will be receiving an email or text notification in the coming week inviting them to book an appointment, as the Province’s age-based program moves ahead.
People must be registered through B.C.’s Get Vaccinated system to get an email or text notification prompting them to book an appointment when it is their turn. Anyone who is not registered should register in one of three ways:
- 24-7, online: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated.html
- through a provincial call centre between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (Pacific time), toll-free, at 1 833 838-2323
- in person at the nearest Service BC location
People 50 and up can expect to start receiving the email and text notifications on the following days:
- Friday, April 30: 56 and up (1965 or earlier)
- Sunday, May 2: 54 and up (1967 or earlier)
- Tuesday, May 4: 52 and up (1969 or earlier)
- Thursday, May 6: 50 and up (1971 or earlier)
People need their personal health number (found on their CareCard or on the back of a driver’s licence or BC Services Card), postal code, first and last name, date of birth and an email address that gets checked regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages to register online. People who do not have a personal health number can register by phone or in person. Translations are available in more than 140 languages over the phone.
Since the Get Vaccinated provincial registration and booking system started on April 6, more than 1.8 million British Columbians have registered and nearly 670,000 have booked their shot.
As of April 29, 2021, more than 1.6 million people in B.C. have received their first vaccine dose, with that number increasing every day.
