Vaccinations are now underway in BC. People will receive their vaccines in stages, starting in April. Please be patient and watch for updated information on timing for your age group.
Seniors aged 80 and older, and Indigenous seniors aged 65 and older will start receiving their vaccines in March. If you are in this age group, watch for information on how to register for your appointment to get the vaccine.

The general public is expected to start receiving vaccines in April. Vaccines will be delivered by age group, starting with those aged 75 and older. Everyone should have received the first dose of the vaccine by the end of July. Health authorities will shortly be reaching out to all British Columbians with information on how to register to get the vaccine. For information on the four phases of the immunization campaign, and to understand when you will be eligible, please go to the BC Centre for Disease Control website here.
Thank you for your patience, and please continue to do all you can to prevent spread of the virus, and to keep you and your loved ones safe. This means wearing a mask when you’re out, staying six feet from others, limiting contact to those living in your household, and washing your hands frequently
Due to the CoVID-19 pandemic and our effort to minimize social contact within our clinic, you are now able to call our office and schedule a telephone consultation with your regular physician. If required this could be changed to a video consultation or in person appointment.
If you are calling to make an appointment please be prepared to answer questions about your problem so we can book the right type of appointment for you.
