When can I book my influenza (flu) vaccine appointment?
Influenza vaccines will start to arrive in BC in early October. Priority populations will be invited to book vaccine appointments first; this includes people most at risk of severe illness and complications, such as seniors 65 and older, residents in long-term care facilities, Indigenous peoples, pregnant people and those with chronic health conditions (e.g., cancer, HIV, hepatitis C, diabetes), as well as health-care workers.
Invitations for appointments for everyone else will begin on October 10, 2023, and will continue through October. People can receive influenza and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time if they wish.
If you are already registered with the provincial Get Vaccinated system, you will automatically receive an invitation to book your influenza vaccine online when it's time to book your appointment. If you are not yet registered with the Get Vaccinated system, please register.
