LETHBRIDGE, AB – Another round of COVID-19 vaccine bookings is opening up.

If you were born in 1957, and have no severe chronic illness, you can schedule an appointment to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The same goes for any First Nation, Metis, or Inuit persons born in 1972.

More appointments will open up for people born in later years – one year at a time over the following days – depending on vaccine supply.

You’re asked not to try to book before your birth year is eligible as it causes longer waits for everyone.

How to book:

  • Born in 1957: Book through AHS (online or 811) starting March 10
  • FNMI born in 1972: Call 811 only, starting March 10

AstraZeneca is not available in pharmacies at this time.
