Thank you for your patience. We are contacting you to give you a time to book in for your 2nd dose of AstraZeneca at BioPro Biologics Pharmacy at 845 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC.
Dr. Bonnie Henry announced that pharmacies will begin to give out AstraZeneca 2nd doses for those who have already received their first doses of AstraZeneca.
However, since we received only a fraction of what we had for the first dose, we will not be able to accommodate everyone who did their first dose with us. We are opening up for the first group of people who did the shots early on but will continue to open up more spots later if we do get more doses.
We will only be sending out invites to anyone who has had their shots done before April 27, 2021 (thus, fulfilling the 8 weeks minimum requirement)
When you arrive at your appointment, you must be able to show us both verification below to begin immunization:
- Your BC services card (or the ID with your Personal Health Number)
- This email that we sent out to you
We are currently unable to accept anyone who has not qualified the 8 weeks waiting period or anyone who did not receive an email directly from us. If you are unable to show us either of the two verifications, we would have to ask you to re-register for another opening and we would then pass your spot to another patient.
What is the timeframe between first and second dose:
- The recommended timeframe between 1st & 2nd AstraZeneca doses are 8 – 12 weeks
- Please do not come in earlier. We will provide your 2nd shot as long as the day of your 2nd injection has been at least 8 weeks since your 1st Otherwise, we would have to ask you to come back on another day.
What are my options for 2nd dose?
- Patients can get Pfizer/ Moderna / AstraZeneca for their 2nd dose
- For AstraZeneca, you can get it at BioPro Pharmacy
- For Pfizer/Moderna, you will have to get it at one of the immunization clinics. If you wish to do this, please register online to their website @ https://www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/s/
The scheduling app is full. How can I get in?
- We are timing each slot based on the interests and our abilities to immunize. We will open more appointment times later to the best of our ability and resources.
