Province reminds people to get bivalent COVID-19 booster

1,613,826 people have received a bivalent COVID-19 booster in B.C.


THE Province is reminding people to get vaccinated with a bivalent COVID-19 booster for the most effective protection against the Omicron variants of COVID-19.

Those who were previously invited for a bivalent vaccine, but have not booked their appointment, are encouraged to do so by using the previous invite or requesting a new one by calling 1-833-838-2323.

B.C.’s COVID-19 vaccination program has helped keep people safe during the fall and winter months when respiratory infections increase. Since September 1, 2022, 1,613,826 people have received a bivalent COVID-19 booster.

Those who received a monovalent booster in the summer of 2022 are eligible for a bivalent booster. People who received a monovalent booster six months ago will receive an invitation from the Get Vaccinated program to book an appointment for a bivalent.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) does not recommend a second bivalent booster dose for those who have already received one in the fall as they are still protected against COVID-19. Updated NACI guidance on the need for further bivalent boosters is expected in the coming weeks.
