Vaccine information

Do I need to register for my second, third or booster dose? 

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.

You may not have registered through the provincial Get Vaccinated provincial registration system once if:

  • You are a senior or Indigenous person who booked through Fraser Health before April 6
  • You registered for a first dose of AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD directly through your local pharmacy only
  • You got your first dose at a workplace clinic, community outreach clinic or a whole of community clinic
  • You are clinically extremely vulnerable
  • You are a frontline worker who got your first dose with the priority populations program

Learn about appointment timing on the BCCDC's webpage.

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.

See the infographic on vaccine boosters and third doses.

Learn more about boosters and third doses on the BCCDC’s website bccdc.ca.

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.
