Question: 

I think I am in a priority group in the future. How will I know if I can get vaccinated?

Answer: 

When you can get the vaccine will depend on which phase you fit into. Everyone who would like a vaccine and who is eligible to receive one will have the opportunity to be vaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone living in B.C. who is eligible to receive it.

B.C.'s COVID-19 Immunization Plan will happen in four phases. The focus at first is to protect those most vulnerable to severe illness. This is happening from now until the end of March as vaccines are being delivered regularly throughout the province of B.C. After phase 1 and 2, immunization begins in the general population. Vaccines will primarily be distributed by age, starting with the oldest. People with certain underlying conditions will also be included.

The scheduling of groups for vaccination may change based on vaccine availability and transmission.
