How do I register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine?
Everyone needs to register once through the Get Vaccinated provincial registration system.
If you have already registered, you will be notified by email, text or phone call when it's your turn to book an appointment for your next dose. You do not need a booster dose to be considered fully vaccinated.
If you have not registered through Get Vaccinated, register now.
If your contact information has changed since your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine, please update your contact information in the provincial online Get Vaccinated system.
You may not have registered through the provincial Get Vaccinated provincial registration system once if:

What is the difference between a booster dose and a third dose?
Booster doses and third doses have different purposes. A booster dose helps maintain and lengthen your level of protection as immunity may decrease over time. A third dose is for people with compromised immune systems who don’t develop a strong enough immune response with two doses, and need a third dose to be better protected against COVID-19.

B.C. is encouraging people at high risk of severe illness to get a spring booster when they receive an invitation six months after their last COVID-19 vaccine. This includes:
- People aged 80 and older
- All seniors in long-term care homes or waiting for admission
- Indigenous Peoples aged 70 and older
- People aged 18 and older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised
As well, people aged 60 and older and Indigenous Peoples aged 50 and older who have not previously had COVID-19 can consider receiving a spring booster dose.
Learn more about the spring booster.
Where can I find the date of my previous dose(s) of vaccine?
The date of your previous dose(s) can be found on your COVID-19 Immunization Record Card, which you should have received at the time of your vaccination.
If you have lost your card, your immunization record is also available online in the Health Gateway. Signing up is quick and easy using your mobile BC services card.
