Question: 

I am part of the clinically extremely vulnerable category and did not receive a patient invitation letter by April 15th. What do I do to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment?

Answer: 
If you're on the clinically extremely vulnerable list and you haven't received your patient invitation letter by April 15, it may be because:
  • You recently moved to B.C.
  • You had a treatment in another province
  • You don't get medication through the BC PharmaNet system
  • Your home address on file is outdated
Starting April 6, you can book an appointment using the online Get Vaccinated registration and booking tool or call centre.
 
 
Book online
The registration system will use your Personal Health Number to confirm your eligibility and notify you to book an appointment. If the registration system doesn't confirm your eligibility, contact the call centre. A phone agent can help you. Call: 1-833-838-2323
 
The phone agent will book you an appointment. To get the vaccine at the appointment, you must present either:
  • Your patient invitation letter
  • An attestation form signed by your doctor
If you do not have the invitation letter, and the phone agent cannot confirm your eligibility, you will need to get a CEV attestation form signed by your doctor. Please talk to your doctor to get this form.
 
Please note that the circumstances around COVID-19 vaccines in BC are changing regularly, so this information may change.
