Select pharmacies now offering vaccination appointments for those aged 55 to 65

People aged 55 to 65 in certain communities across BC will have the opportunity to be vaccinated ahead of schedule.

According to the BC Pharmacy Association, that specific age group can now book appointments to receive their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine at select pharmacies across the province.

Multiple pharmacies in Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince George, and Victoria are listed as having a limited supply of the vaccine.

Those interested in booking an appointment are being directed to visit their local pharmacy's website and follow the prompts. If successful, you should receive a confirmation email from your chosen pharmacy location.
