AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 Vaccines In Pharmacies

June 1, 2021

June 1, 2021 - Since a May 12, 2021 announcement pausing first doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines in pharmacy, no second or first doses of AstraZeneca are being offered in B.C. pharmacy currently.

The Province said its approach is to have enough vaccine for each person who had a first dose of AstraZeneca to receive a second dose of AstraZeneca. We expect to have more information to share with the public later this week.

The BC Pharmacy Association encourages all eligible British Columbians to register for the Province's vaccine registry.
