IH opens COVID-19 vaccine bookings Monday

Interior Health will open up its call centre on Monday for seniors to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

On Monday, seniors aged 90 and over, and Indigenous peoples aged 65 and over, can begin booking appointments by calling 1-877-740-7747. The call centre is open seven days per week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We remind everyone to be vigilant against fraud. Call centres will never ask for financial information, credit card details, or social insurance numbers.

The call centre will only ask for:

  • legal name
  • date of birth
  • postal code
  • personal health number (PHN) from the back of B.C. driver’s licences or BC services cards, and
  • current contact information, including an email address you or your family checks regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages.

The public is reminded to follow a staggered approach to prevent long waits and system overload.

  • March 8: Seniors born in or before 1931 (90 years+) and Indigenous people born in or before 1956 (65 years+) may call to book their vaccine appointment;
  • March 15: Seniors born in or before 1936 (85 years+) may call to book their vaccine appointment; and
  • March 22: Seniors born in or before 1941 (80 years+) may call to book their vaccine appointment.

​Immunization clinic locations will be confirmed at the time of booking, with vaccinations starting as early as March 15.
