Getting immunized can help keep you, your community, and the healthcare system in British Columbia safe.

Booking an appointment

Starting in the fall of 2024, everyone six months and older can get updated influenza (flu) and COVID-19 vaccine. This fall's COVID-19 vaccine will switch to the JN.1 strain of the virus.

Invitations will be sent by email or text message to everyone who has received a COVID-19 immunization in B.C. The invite will have a direct link to book your COVID-19 and flu appointments online.

In the fall, the best way to book is to wait for your invitation. If you previously received a COVID-19 vaccine in B.C., you’re already registered in the Get Vaccinated system, no action is required. If you have never received a COVID-19 vaccine in B.C., register in the Get Vaccinated system.

Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines, such as vaccine safety and considerations and vaccines and children, on the BCCDC website.

For children less than 12 years of age, or in areas where pharmacies are no longer offering COVID-19 vaccine, please call the provincial call centre at 1 (833) 838-2323 or contact your local public health unit.
