How to use the “Get Vaccinated” registration and booking system

Starting at 8 a.m. (Pacific time), April 6, 2021, people born in 1950 and before (71 years and older), Indigenous peoples 18 and older, and people who are clinically extremely vulnerable and have received a letter inviting them to book a vaccination, will be able to use the Province’s new “Get Vaccinated” registration and booking system through three, easy steps:

  1. Register: First, and when it is your age cohort, register and get a confirmation code. Do not lose this code, you will need it to book your vaccination appointment later.
  2. Book an appointment: You will be contacted when you are eligible to book a vaccine appointment. Eligibility is based on your age and B.C.’s COVID-19 Immunization Plan.
    You will select a clinic location, date and time for your vaccination.
  3. Get vaccinated: Visit an immunization clinic to get your vaccine.

To register online, visit: gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated
and provide

  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Postal code
  • Personal Health Number (on the back of your B.C. driver’s licence, B.C. Services Card or Care Card)
  • An email address that gets checked regularly or a phone number that can receive texts

If you do not have a Personal Health Number, you can register by phone or at a Service BC office.

Information collected for the COVID-19 vaccination program will not be shared with other agencies. People will never be asked for their SIN, driver's licence number or banking and credit card details.

To register by phone:

  • Call (toll-free) 1 833 838-2323.
  • Translators are available in 140 languages.
  • Call centres are open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Pacific time).

To register at a Service BC office:

People who have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, using one of the five regional health authority call centres, will use the online registration and booking tool or the Get Vaccinated call centre when it is time for them to book their second dose. Details on when people should register for their second dose will be available in May 2021. 

B.C.’s COVID-19 immunization plan is based on scientific evidence, expert advice and guidelines from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and developed by B.C.’s immunization committee and public health leadership committee led by Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer. The plan is focused on preventing severe illness and death, protecting the health-care system by immunizing health-care workers and managing outbreaks.
