Alberta’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program Enters Phase 2B

Lisa C. Community, COVID-19, Settlement & Community News, Updates

The government of Alberta has planned out the provincial vaccination program and stages.
Starting March 30, we have entered Phase 2B. Albertans eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines during Phase 2B include:
  • cancer patients
  • transplant recipients
  • individuals with disabilities and dementia
  • individuals with other conditions that put them at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19.

Starting March 30, Albertans eligible in Phase 2B  born in or before 1963 will be able to book appointments through participating pharmacies that have vaccine supply in Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. In the coming week, as more vaccine supply is available, other pharmacies will begin to offer bookings. 

Starting April 5, Alberta Health Services (AHS) will start taking bookings for people eligible in Phase 2B born in or before 1959.

Additional birth years in Phase 2B will become eligible as more vaccines arrive.
