  • 1941 or earlier (80+) – call week of March 22nd

Get Ready To Call

When you call your health authority, you’ll be asked for:

  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Postal code
  • Personal Health Number

You can find your Personal Health Number on the back of your B.C. driver’s licence, BC Services Card or CareCard. If you do not have a Personal Health Number, you can still receive the vaccine.

We’ll also ask you for contact information:

  • An email address that gets checked regularly; or
  • A phone number that can receive text messages

What We Won’t Ask For

We will never ask you for your SIN, driver’s licence number or banking and credit card details.
