COVID-19 vaccines

Vancouver Coastal Health is working with the Province of BC and other health authorities to make it easier than ever for people to get vaccinated with the launch of Vax for BC. This is the next step in the provincial campaign to help as many eligible people as possible get vaccinated.

Vaccination clinics in your community

Drop-ins are now welcome at all VCH clinics on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on your eligibility and vaccine availability. People 12+ are eligible to be vaccinated and you are eligible for a second dose at 28 days after your first dose. Please monitor the vaccination clinic listings below for updated dates and locations. 

While registration and booking using the provincial Get Vaccinated system is still encouraged, these clinics will allow eligible people to drop-in and receive a vaccine without a scheduled appointment.
