COVID-19 vaccines are available in the Family Immunization Clinic for the BCCH patients who are already eligible per the provincial immunization program, including young people who are 12 years and above, and are in the 'clinically extremely vulnerable' group. Eligibility is available at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/vaccine/cev. Please note that BCCH is not a public COVID-19 vaccine site. More information around COVID-19 and the vaccine can be found at the BCCDC website.
Eligible patients should have EITHER received an invitation letter from Dr. Bonnie Henry OR have a completed attestation form, signed by a physician or nurse practitioner. They should bring this letter with them to the appointment.
If you have patients who are eligible per the provincial guidance, please ask them to contact the Family Immunization Clinic as below to book an appointment if they have not already been vaccinated and wish to do so. They are also welcome to go to one of the public health clinics found here.
Please note that for logistical reasons, patients can only be given a COVID-19 vaccine if they have booked an appointment. We cannot accept drop-ins for COVID-19 immunizations. We will not be able to vaccinate siblings (unless they also meet the criteria), or other family members at this time.
