To register for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment, the public will only be asked for:
- legal name
- date of birth
- postal code
- personal health number (PHN) from a Care Card or the back of the B.C. driver’s licence or BCservices cards, and
- current contact information, including an email address or a phone number that is regularlychecked.
Additional supply of COVID-19 vaccine announced by the Province makes it possible to direct immunizations toward these high-risk workers in select settings such as food processing facilities, work camps, farms and nurseries, IH said in a news release.
Having received 6,500 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine from the province, Interior Health said it will complete these targeted immunizations over the next few weeks. Interior Health has identified eligible employers and is working directly with them to arrange vaccine scheduling.
