Whole Community Approach

Island Health’s immunization teams visited 28 rural and remote communities early in 2022 to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to all eligible people age five and older. 

Future appointments may be available in some communities that are visited regularly by Public Health and Community Health team. Depending on the population size and demand, COVID-19 vaccinations may be provided at regular public health clinics or at specific COVID-19 clinics.

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

To make an appointment, please ensure that you are registered in the provincial ‘Get Vaccinated’ system. This is fast and easy and can be done online at www.GetVaccinated.gov.bc.ca or by calling 1-833-838-2323.

After registering, you will get an invitation via email, text or phone call when you can book an appointment. Your invitation does not expire. 

BC’s immunization registration system will automatically send an invitation when you are eligible for your next dose.
