Register with the Get Vaccinated provincial registration system to be notified when you can book your vaccine appointment.

Updated October 20, 2022

Getting vaccinated is one important way we can protect ourselves and our loved ones as we head into respiratory season this fall.

Everyone five years and older is eligible for a COVID-19 booster this fall, six months after their last dose.

You will receive the right vaccine for you.

  • Age 12 and over: Omicron (bivalent) vaccine
  • Age five to 11: pediatric booster
  • Age six months to four years: primary series only

More information is available on the BC government website.

Vaccine information

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:

  • 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. 

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.
