Registering Online for Second Dose Appointments

In March, CPBC provided information to registrants regarding the roll-out of COVID vaccinations for allied health professionals providing direct patient care, and many registrants took advantage of the opportunities as they were made available through their regional health authorities. At that time, the provincial booking system had not yet been established online. That booking system, found at: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/vaccine/register, is now available to all British Columbians. Please be advised that registrants who obtained their first dose of the vaccine prior to the establishment of the online booking system are required to register online in order to ensure confirmation of their booking for a second dose of the COVID vaccine at the appropriate time.
