Northern BC residents will have ongoing opportunities to get vaccinated against COVID-19, as community pharmacies and Northern Health vaccine clinics work together to improve and maintain immunization rates in the region.
BC pharmacies are playing an even bigger role in delivering vaccines as part of the Province’s ongoing immunization campaign against COVID-19 and are now the primary option for immunization for people age 12 and older. Community pharmacies in twelve northern communities are offering both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, and will be providing the Novavax vaccine when it is available in BC.
For immunizations for children 5 to 11 years of age, and in those communities without a pharmacy offering vaccines for those age 12 and older, Northern Health will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccine appointments at regularly scheduled clinics. Clinics will continue to be carefully planned based on vaccine registrations and appointment bookings.
Eligible individuals who are registered with the Get Vaccinated system will see a list of participating pharmacies and (or) Northern Health vaccine clinics, when they receive their invitation to book a vaccine appointment. The NH website is the most up to date source for information on current clinic schedules and locations.
