BC COVID-19 IMMUNIZATION PLAN
The COVID-19 vaccine is saving lives. Vaccines do more than protect the people getting vaccinated, they also protect everyone around them. The more people in a community who are immunized and protected from COVID-19, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.
Phase 1 and Phase 2: High-Risk Population Immunization
The focus of Phase 1 and Phase 2 is protecting those most vulnerable to severe illness first.
Phase 3 and Phase 4: General Population Immunization
Vaccination for the general population runs April to September 2021. Vaccines will primarily be distributed in five-year age increments, starting with the 79 to 75 age group. Monthly breakdowns for the first dose (D1) and second dose (D2) are estimates and may change based on vaccine availability. Monthly breakdowns can be found by clicking on the link below.
Unless you are considered part of the “High-risk population,” the timing for your vaccination will be determined solely by your age bracket. For more information, including what is considered “High-risk population,” and projected timelines, please visit https://www2.gov.bc.ca.
