COVID-19 VACCINES – BRITISH COLUMBIA

British Columbia’s public health department is handling the rollout of the COVID-19 immunization program.

Eligible Pharmasave pharmacies are currently able to provide the COVID-19 Covishield/AstraZeneca vaccine to people 55 and older as part of BC’s COVID vaccine rollout. As more vaccine supply is available, more pharmacies may be added to the provincial program and we will update this page at that time.

Eligible Patients: Find a vaccinating Pharmasave near you and book your appointment

Pharmasave is aware of the evolving situation with the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Further investigation is taking place by stakeholders and we continue to follow the guidance of Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and jurisdictions across Canada. For more information:  Health Canada: NACI response on the recommended use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in younger adults.

Prepare for Your Appointment

  • You will be screened for COVID -19 symptoms and risk factors using the BC COVID-19 screening criteria. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to self-isolate, do not come to the pharmacy.
  • You will be asked to complete a consent form. You can complete the consent form at home and bring it with you to the pharmacy. A consent form is available here.
  • You will be asked to wear a mask or face covering.
  • Bring your health card with you to the pharmacy.
  • Wear loose clothing with short sleeves. The vaccine will be given in your upper arm.
  • Arrive on time for your appointment and not early.
  • Limit the number of people who come to the pharmacy.

After your vaccine you will be asked to wait in the pharmacy for 15 minutes or as determined by the pharmacist.

The COVID-19 vaccine requires 2 doses. The pharmacy will provide you with information about your second dose.

The COVID-19 vaccine cannot be given within 14 days of any other vaccine. You must wait at least 28 days after your COVID-19 vaccine before getting any other vaccine.
