Fraser Health has developed a COVID-19 immunization process for youth aged 12 to 18 in order to ensure young people can receive their vaccines in a way that works best for them.

There are three options for youth ages 12 to 18 to receive their COVID-19 vaccine: 

  1. Attend one of our existing community clinics (transportation support and special accommodations can be made, see details below).
  2. Request an outreach visit to the facility where they receive care. 
  3. Request to receive the vaccine at home. 

To qualify for option two or three, they will need to meet the criteria indicated in the Outreach Request Form.  

If the youth can attend a community-based clinic, please do the following:

  1. First, determine if they will need transportation.
  2. Register and book an appointment
    • Call 1-833-838-2323 to register and book (someone can do this on behalf of the youth).
      The person booking the appointment will need the youth’s first and last name, date of birth, postal code, Personal Health Number, an email address that gets checked regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages.
  3. Determine who can provide consent
    • Review the Mature Minor Consent Health File to determine if the youth can provide their own consent.
    • If the youth is unable to provide their own consent, their decision maker will need to be present with the youth or available to be contacted by phone at the time of the appointment. The decision maker’s contact information must be brought with the youth to the appointment.
  4. Make arrangements for in-clinic appointment needs
    • If there are specific needs to facilitate immunization in the community immunization centre location, email C19ImmsClinicCarePlanRequest@fraserhealth.ca and our team will coordinate to meet those needs. Examples of accommodations that can be made include:
      • Arrange to attend a particular drive-through location with support pre-planned
      • Arrange to attend a particular clinic and go to a quieter location within the clinic
      • Arrange to meet at the clinic entrance and facilitate getting into a seat – due to mobility challenges with long walk/standing and waiting. 

Request an outreach visit to the facility where they receive care:

If youth are unable to travel to one of the Fraser Health Immunization sites and do not live at home with a parent or guardian, service providers can request an outreach visit for the youth using the Outreach Request Form. Once completed, password protects the form and email it to the Fraser Health Nursing Support Services (NSS) team at FHNSS@fraserhealth.ca, who will assess the request and coordinate the outreach visit. 

Outreach visits are provided to youth who are unable to attend a community immunization clinic and who meet eligibility criteria found here.

Requests to receive the vaccine at home: 

For youth living at home with a parent or guardian that are unable to attend one of the Fraser Health immunization sites, a home visit can be requested.

  1. To request a home visit, please call the Home Health service line at 1-855-412-2121.
  2. When calling, please have the following information ready: youth’s first and last name, date of birth, Personal Health Number (Care Card number, or BC Services Card number), address, email address and a contact phone number. 

In-home visits are provided to youth who are unable to attend a community immunization clinic and who meet eligibility criteria found here.

For individuals who are 19 years of age and older and need assistance, please contact our Home Health Service Line at 1-855-412-2121 (toll-free and open 7 days a week, 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.) or visit our Home and Community Care web page for more information.
