Question: 

Where is the consent form for getting the COVID-19 vaccine? I’d like to read and sign it before I go to the clinic.

Answer: 

In B.C., a COVID-19 consent form is not required. In most clinics, you will only need to give verbal consent to the health care provider. To understand more details about the vaccine, you can read the HealthLinkBC File COVID-19 vaccine. In the future, some pharmacies may ask you to sign a consent form for their records only. There are adults who are unable to consent to vaccines on their own and there is a consent form for a caregiver to consent on their behalf here.

Consent forms for youth

Same as adults, a COVID-19 consent form is not required. However, there are consent forms that the BCCDC has made that your clinic may choose to use. You can see them below:
