Interior Health would like to remind everyone that COVID-19 activity is currently increasing across the region. Vaccinated or not, it is crucial that everyone follows all public health orders and guidance to reduce COVID-19 transmission throughout the community.

Interior Health is now asking everyone age 18 and up to register for their vaccine appointment.

There can be a wait time between when you register and when you are invited to book your appointment. Wait times vary depending on your age, vaccine supply, and where you live. Once you’re registered, you’ll get an email or text as soon as it’s your turn to book your appointment.
