BC Vaccine card-September 8th, 2021, newsletter

Dear Neighbour,

The BC Vaccine Card website is now up and running and can be accessed here.

The waiting time to access the website has ranged. Yesterday when one of the office staff accessed it, the wait time was about 40 minutes. Earlier today it was about 12 minutes, and just a few minutes ago the wait time was down to 2 minutes. Once you are on the website, it only takes a minute or two to answer the questions and get a copy of the card to save to your phone or computer. The vaccine card allows people to to attend certain events, services, and businesses such as restaurants and bars, and helps to keep workers and the community safe.

Since the vaccine card takes effect next Monday September 13th, I just wanted to answer some of the frequently asked questions in this email.

How do I get my BC Vaccine Card?

Most people will get their card online:

  • View, save a copy to your phone, or print your vaccine card – similar to a boarding pass for a flight.

If you can’t access your card online, there are lots of ways to get a printed card: asking a friend for help, going to Service BC or calling the contact centre at 1-833-838-2323.

People who have signed up for Health Gateway will be able to access their vaccine card there as well.
