When will the general public be able to get a second COVID-19 booster dose?

Question: 

When will the general public be able to get a second COVID-19 booster dose?

Answer: 
B.C. is making plans to offer everyone 12 years of age and older a fall booster dose. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has been clear this approach will provide the best protection in the fall and winter when we’re all spending more time inside and respiratory illness is passed around our communities. Everyone 12 years of age and older will be sent a personalized booking invitation this fall. 
 
Some people may have unique needs and getting a booster dose in July or August might be best for them. This is okay, but not generally recommended. If you're 18 or older and you have unique needs, the call centre can help you book an appointment. Don’t phone until you’ve received a fall booster update email or SMS.
