You can also book in-person at a Service BC office with the same information above.

Almost 770,000 eligible British Columbians - or one in six - have received their first dose of vaccine and more than 87,000 have received their second dose.

The new system will kick off the next phase of the largest vaccination program in B.C. history, with millions of people expected to be immunized, she said. On Tuesday, people aged 71 and older and Indigenous people aged 18 and older can register for a dose.

Starting Tuesday, all eligible British Columbians will be able to register to book their COVID-19 vaccinations online.

"We encourage everyone to get their vaccine at their first opportunity, when it is their turn", said Health Minister Adrian Dix.

"Today marks a major milestone in our fight against COVID-19, and we ask everyone to wait their turn and follow three steps to help put this pandemic behind us", Premier John Horgan said in a statement.

What if I have already received my first dose?

Those looking for the Astra-Zeneca vaccine will need to book directly with their local pharmacy.

Many people in this province have been calling for access to online booking, as until now, only people living within the Fraser Health Authority could do so.

The new system launches on April 6.

The province is also launching a single call centre, rather than having individual ones available for each health authority.

The first dose of the vaccine has been given to 87,634 beneficiaries who are within the age group of 45 to 60 years and the second dose has been administered to 1,016 such beneficiaries, he added. Figures released Saturday did not include data on recent COVID-related deaths or hospitalizations. That number is 1-833-838-2323. The province said more information would be provided later this week.

In addition to the COVAX supply, Canada is to receive 1,019,070 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 855,600 doses of the Moderna vaccine over the next seven days.
