As of Thursday, pregnant women in B.C. can now book a COVID-19 booster shot if it has been at least eight weeks since they received their second vaccine dose.
The province recommends all residents get their booster but urges pregnant women receive their booster during pregnancy to ensure optimal protection for them and their baby.
After indicating they are pregnant through the Get Vaccinated system, they will receive an invitation for a booster shot. Approximately 1,800 people have already stated that they are pregnant and will automatically receive an invitation.
Those who have not registered with the Get Vaccinated system can register online, by phone or at a Service BC Centre.
As of December 31st, everyone over 18 who had their second dose of the vaccine at least six months is eligible to receive their booster.
