VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province of B.C. will launch an online booking system for COVID-19 vaccinations.
The system will launch Tuesday as the Province moves into phase three of its COVID-19 immunization plan.
“British Columbians faced the countless challenges of this past year with incredible courage,” said Premier John Horgan. “Today marks a major milestone in our fight against COVID-19, and we ask everyone to wait their turn and follow three steps to help put this pandemic behind us.”
Appointments are still being booked by age. In the Northern Health Region, those that can book varies from 18 and up in communities like Tumbler Ridge, Hudson’s Hope and Chetwynd to those born in 1951 and before in Fort St. John.

“We encourage everyone in B.C. to get their vaccine at their first opportunity when it is their turn,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.
“With more vaccine supply, we are taking an important step into Phase 3 of our immunization plan, and I encourage anyone who has questions to go to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control website to learn more about the safe and effective vaccines we have here in B.C.,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry, provincial health officer. “Every vaccine delivered makes all of us safer – let’s keep our momentum going and get everyone who wants one, their first dose by Canada Day.”
