AstraZeneca Vaccine Available to Anyone 30 and Older, Pfizer Available for Anyone 59 and Older
“Starting today, the AstraZeneca vaccine will be available to anyone 30 and older, starting with some of the ‘hot spot’ community clinics“, reported Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer, and Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “As we receive enough AstraZeneca to add appointments at pharmacies, it will be made available to anyone in the province aged 30 and older.
“We know demand for the AstraZeneca vaccine is high in many areas. Unfortunately, available supply through pharmacies in some regions will continue to be limited until additional supplies come in. You can find a list of local pharmacies here. We expect more vaccine to arrive in our province starting next week.
“The first step for everyone is to register for their vaccine. Everyone in B.C. who is 18 years and older is now eligible to register on the Get Vaccinated website.
“In our age-based program, anyone 59 and older can now take the next step of booking their appointment. We encourage you to do that right away. Our worker program continues with targeted clinics underway. This program will be further expanded as significantly more vaccine starts to arrive in our province next week.
“Whether you had your vaccine last month, or are booked for the days ahead, we remind everyone to continue to use all of your layers of protection, to stay small and stay local until we have COVID-19 where we want and need it to be.”
