Clinic Dates Cortes:
Monday June 21 - Wednesday June 23

Book your appointments:
After Friday, June 4 at 12 noon

Be prepared:
You will need your Health card # and your registration confirmation number. They prefer if you book online with the link provided in your confirmation email/text, but if you rather phone or your link does not work, you can call 1-833-838-2323 to book your appointment.

Island Health’s immunization team will return to Cortes Island from June 21-23 and to Quadra Island June 27-30 to conduct COVID-19 vaccine clinics for second doses, along with first doses for those who have not yet been vaccinated, including 12-17 year olds.

Residents who have received their second dose booking notice will be able to begin booking in to these clinics on Friday, June 4 at 12 noon. Please follow the link from the text or email you received inviting you to book your second dose.

If you had your first dose more than 8 weeks ago and have not received a notification to book your second dose, you may not be registered in the provincial vaccination booking system. Please register by going to or call 1-833-838-2323 for support.

Please note that we will try our best to provide the same brand of mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) for second doses that were used for first doses, but due to supply issues it may not always be possible. It is both safe and effective to use Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines interchangeably.
