There are now 259 pharmacies in 107 communities offering the vaccine.
The number of participating pharmacies will keep increasing as more vaccine doses arrive, with up to 500 locations booking appointments by early April. These pharmacies are rapidly increasing the province’s ability to immunize people as quickly and safely as possible. Recent delays in Moderna shipments may impact some pharmacy appointments scheduled for the week of March 22.
Community pharmacies will ultimately be the largest provider of the vaccine to Albertans. To date, more than 35,000 doses of vaccine have been administered at pharmacies provincewide. Each participating pharmacy is adhering to strict protocols to protect patrons and staff. Pharmacists must have demonstrated experience with immunizations and the specialized skills needed to safely provide COVID-19 vaccines. Eligible Albertans can book appointments by calling the participating pharmacies or through their online booking systems. Alberta Health Services will also continue to book appointments online and through 811.
