Question: 

I am part of the clinically extremely vulnerable category for the COVID-19 vaccine. When will I get a patient invitation letter? How do I book my appointment? What do I do if I have lost the letter?

Answer: 

People aged 16 to 74 who are on the clinically extremely vulnerable list, will receive a patient invitation letter. The letter will be mailed to your home address on file with your Personal Health Number (found on the back of your B.C. driver's licence, BC Services Card or CareCard).
Letters will be mailed starting March 24 and should arrive by April 15.

You can call to book a vaccine appointment at (1-833-838-2323). You can book a vaccine appointment for yourself or have a family member or friend call for you. Before you register, we recommend you review information from the BC Centre for Disease Control on the planning, timing and safety of the vaccine with consideration of your health condition.
 

If you have lost your letter, you can contact the call centre, to confirm that you are on the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable list. Mention that you have lost your letter and ask how you can book your appointment.

You will be offered either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine dose. A choice will not be offered between the two brands unless you have a contraindication to one of the vaccines.
