Immunization Booking

COVID-19

Last Updated: April 20, 2021 - 8 a.m.

Please Be Patient - We Are All In This Together

We understand the process of booking a COVID-19 immunization appointment may be confusing and stressful for some and sometimes this leads to high emotions. Please know all our teams are doing their best to book as many Albertans in to get immunized as quickly as possible.

If you are unable to find an appointment, additional appointments will open up over the following days and weeks as supply allows. Regular updates will be made to our website and we encourage everyone who would like to book an appointment to continue checking to see if appointments are available.

Please be patient. Abusive behaviour will not be tolerated.

Healthcare Workers

Starting April 12 at 8 a.m. eligible healthcare workers will be able to book via the AHS online booking tool, or through participating pharmacies. If you are unable to find an appointment, we ask that you please be patient. We expect additional appointments will open up over the following days and weeks as supply allows. Learn more in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Homebound Individuals

Starting March 29, AHS will begin providing COVID-19 immunization to homebound Albertans, as vaccine supply allows. Homebound is defined as anyone who is physically unable to leave their home, such as for medical or personal appointments. AHS will reach out to eligible Home Care clients directly in the coming weeks. You do not need to book an appointment.

Congregate Care Facilities

Residents living in a care home, lodge or other congregate care facility, regardless of age, will be contacted directly by their care team and do not need to book their own appointment. This only applies to complexes where residents have communal dining and do not have their own apartments / homes and condos.

Prepare For Your Appointment

  • We ask that all individuals wait in their cars until 5 minutes before their appointment and not arrive more than 10 minutes early.
  • Bring one piece of identification with you that proves your age, which could include your Alberta Health Care card, a driver's license, Social Insurance Number, birth certificate, or passport.
  • Wear clothing that will easily allow access to your upper arm for receiving the immunization.
  • Need transportation? Reach out to 211.
  • If you have needle fear or concerns about pain associated with immunization, learn more.

Note: We anticipate high demand for appointments and we ask everyone to be patient. We know many Albertans are anxious to get immunized. We are immunizing Albertans as quickly as we can, based on vaccine supply.
