Between October 31 to November 26, 2022, Island Health’s immunization teams will visit specific remote communities on Vancouver Island to provide COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible people age six months and older. 

Check with your local health centre mid October for dates of the next clinic. 

Appointments are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and booster at an Island Health clinic or at one of the many pharmacies now participating in the immunization effort.

To make an appointment, please register in the provincial Get Vaccinated system. Registering is fast and easy and can be done online at www.GetVaccinated.gov.bc.ca or by calling 1-833-838-2323.

The Get Vaccinated system automatically sends invitations to book an appointment when you are eligible for your next dose. You will receive a text, email or phone call when it's your turn to book. The locations available for your appointment will be listed in the online system when you’re booking online or discussed with you if booking by phone. 

For more information and registration, visit How to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
