The B.C. Provincial Government has guidelines about who should get the vaccine and when they can get it.
We expect that "people who are clinically extremely vulnerable" will start getting vaccines in phase 3. This includes some people with certain cancers and some people having cancer treatment. This phase is scheduled to start in April.
Please speak with your oncologist about your situation and when you might be able to get the vaccine.
Remember that this plan may change. The amount of vaccine B.C. gets over the next couple of months may change the plan.
Right now, B.C. does not have a lot of vaccine. We have to give it to the people who are most at risk of getting COVID-19 or dying from COVID-19. We also have to give it to the people who care for those who are most at risk. This includes health care workers and people who work in long-term care homes.
As B.C. gets more vaccines, more people will be vaccinated. This will happen over the next several months.
