People 18 years and older in British Columbia will soon be able to register to book their COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
The B.C. government announced in a statement that starting on April 19 more than 1.8 million people will be invited to register for their COVID-19 vaccine starting.
Beginning on Monday, people 40 years and older will be eligible to register, with those 35 and older becoming eligible to register on Tuesday.
Registration is expected to continue on Wednesday for those 30 and older, Thursday 25 years old and above and people 18 years and older should sign up Friday.
In order to get vaccinated in B.C., eligible individuals must first register and receive a confirmation number from the province.
That confirmation number is required in order to actually book an appointment, and helps health authorities request the right amount of vaccine doses for each community, according to the provincial government.
Individuals will then be notified when they are able to book an appointment, which can be done over the phone or online.
After attending your appointment, and receiving your first dose, you will be notified by email, text, or phone when you become eligible to book an appointment for your second dose.
As of Saturday, 1.2 million people in B.C. have received their first vaccine dose, according to the provincial government.
Individuals can register and book their appointments online by visiting http://gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated or by calling 1-833-838-2323.
