VCH regularly monitors and adjusts clinic dates and hours of operation based on appointments, vaccine availability and the age demographics of the communities we serve.

Registration for a COVID-19 vaccine will be open to those born in 1981 or earlier (age 40+) starting today, April 19, at 12 p.m. People born in 1958 or earlier (63+), Indigenous people born in 2002 or earlier and people who are clinically extremely vulnerable are currently being invited to book an appointment to be vaccinated as part of B.C.'s Immunization Plan.
Information on how to book an appointment for vaccination is available on the Ministry of Health's website. Please check your scheduled appointment date, time and location; arrive on time for your appointment and avoid arriving early.
