Pharmacies across the Thompson Okanagan are providing AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccinations to those ages 55-65.

The vaccines are available in government-selected communities including Kamloops, Kelowna, Westbank and Vernon. These shots are available for the first dose of a patient's COVID-19 vaccine only, according to the B.C. Pharmacy Association.

The association notes distribution of vaccines is ongoing and will be delivered to pharmacies based when supply arrives. Pharmacies with online booking ask residents to try booking online before calling.

Some locations may allow for drop-in service. Residents will be required to bring their Personal Health Number, found on their CareCard or B.C. Services Card.

The list of available pharmacies is updated regularly as more pharmacies come online. For more information and a full list of Interior pharmacy locations that offer the vaccine, visit the association's website.
