Online immunization appointments in B.C. can be booked online as of tomorrow morning.

Prior to this development, people had to call and book appointments for a COVID-19 vaccine.

Starting at 8 a.m. tomorrow, April 6, people born in 1950 or earlier can book their COVID-19 vaccination online.

Indigenous people over the age of 18, and people who have received letters saying they are clinically extremely vulnerable, can also book online by going to the B.C. government's Get Vaccinated website here.

People can still phone a provincewide call-centre at 1-833-838-2323 or make appointments in-person at the Service B.C. offices.

"Every vaccine delivered makes all of us safer,” provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said in a news release. “Let's keep our momentum going and get everyone who wants one, their first dose by Canada Day."

People are asked to wait until their age cohort is eligible before registering for a vaccine and getting a confirmation code.

They will be notified by email, text or phone when they are eligible to book their appointments.

Lower Mainland residents who are 55 to 65 years old can book appointments for the AstraZeneca vaccine at participating pharmacies. That program is expected to expand to other regions of the province over the next few days.
