Eligible Next: Healthcare Workers in Phase 2C - April 12 at 8 a.m.

Starting April 12 at 8 a.m. eligible healthcare workers in Phase 2C will be able to book through the AHS online tool or at participating pharmacies.

This cohort includes more than 240,000 eligible healthcare workers. We anticipate that incoming vaccine supplies over the next 3 - 4 weeks will allow all who are eligible to book appointments during this timeframe, if they want to receive the vaccine.

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. 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.

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we continue to work to immunize as many Albertans as possible.

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.
