The public is reminded to follow a staggered approach to prevent long waits and system overload:

• March 8: Seniors born in or before 1931 (90 years and older) and Indigenous people born in or before 1956 (65 years and older) may call to book their vaccine appointment;

• March 15: Seniors born in or before 1936 (85 years and older) may call to book their vaccine appointment;

• March 22: Seniors born in or before 1941 (80 years and older) may call to book their vaccine appointment.

Immunization clinic locations will be confirmed at the time of booking, with vaccinations starting as early as March 15.

Interior Health is also reminding residents to be vigilant against fraud. Call centres will never ask for financial information, credit card details or social insurance numbers. 

The call centre will only ask for legal name, date of birth, postal code, personal health number (PHN) from the back of B.C. driver's licences or BC services cards and current contact information, including an email address you or your family checks regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages.
