Health Canada approves Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11
Health Canada has now approved the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages five to 11 years old. Parents can register children ages five to 11 in the provincial Get Vaccinated system. Parents will receive a text, email or phone call when it’s time to book a vaccine appointment for their kids.
The Province has been sending out invitations to people 70 and older that are registered in the Get Vaccinated System, as well as well as Indigenous Peoples 12 and older, to register and book their COVID-19 vaccine booster shot. Priority will be given to those most at risk. Starting in January 2022, we will be expanding the plan to include anyone 12 and older. Vaccines are on of the most effective ways of reducing your risk of catching COVID-19, of reducing the effects of it if caught, and of reducing its spread. Please get vaccinated!
You can get your proof of vaccination card by going to https://www.healthgateway.gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard and entering in your name, your date of birth, your personal health number (found on your BC Services Card, or your BC driver’s licence) and the date of one of your vaccines. By entering in that information, the system will generate a vaccine card image that can be saved to your tablet or phone, or printed out and saved to your person. For those without access to a printer or a smartphone, can call 1-833-838-2323 and they will mail out one to you.
