Vancouver Coastal Health expanding first dose COVID-19 vaccination clinic capacity

VANCOUVER Coastal Health (VCH) announced on Monday that it is expanding COVID-19 vaccination appointment capacity at several of its sites and offering drop-in spots to support the ongoing delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations.

VCH strongly encourages eligible people in its region aged 12 and older, who haven’t received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, to book an appointment now or to drop in at one of its convenient locations for easy access to same-day appointments with managed wait times. These are for first doses only.

People aged 70 years of age and older (those born in 1951 or earlier) may attend a drop-in clinic, listed below, for first or second doses.

All are welcome at the clinics, including those without personal health numbers and people who are not residents of B.C. Staff will be available on site to help people register and book appointments at other clinics throughout the region if needed, and can help answer all vaccine-related questions.
