Select Alberta pharmacies will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations to priority groups per AHS eligibility criteria. Due to the rapidly changing guidance, please proceed to complete this form so that we can contact eligible patients once approved. Entering your information will also ensure quick access to up to date information and communication when your demographics are eligible for vaccination.

The COVID-19 Vaccine is used to prevent COVID-19, a disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The vaccine causes our body to produce protection (such as antibodies) that prevent the COVID-19 virus from entering our cells to make us sick. The vaccine is given by injection with a needle in the upper arm and may require two doses.


You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine.


As with any vaccine, the COVID-19 Vaccine may not fully protect all those who receive it. Even after you have received the vaccine, continue to follow the recommendations of local public health officials to prevent spread of COVID-19.


Please only register once for the waitlist.

? What is COVID-19?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) first identified in 2019. Coronaviruses cause infections that range from mild illnesses, such as the common cold, to severe illness, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome(MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). COVID-19 spreads from an infected person to others, mainly through respiratory droplets (e.g.,droplets generated by coughing, sneezing, singing, or talking). Symptoms of COVID-19 include new or worsening cough, fever or chills, new loss of smell or taste, and difficulty breathing. Symptoms can appear up to 14 days after exposure, typically within 3 to 7 days.

? Are we still in the COVID-19 pandemic?

On May 4, 2023, the International Health Regulations (IHR) Emergency Committee of the WHO downgraded the COVID-19 pandemic. The committee determined that COVID-19 is now an established and ongoing health issue which no longer constitutes a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).

? Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Health Canada is recommending a new booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine for everyone in the approved age groups that do not have contraindications to the vaccine if it has been 6 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine or infection. For people who have previously had COVID-19, vaccination is still recommended since protection is more robust and longer lasting with vaccination compared to immunity from previous infection alone.

? Why should I get vaccinated against COVID-19?

Vaccinations have been shown to be very effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalizations due to COVID-19. Vaccines may also reduce your risk of developing symptoms of post COVID-19 condition, also known as “long COVID”, where symptoms are experienced weeks or months after initial infection. Vaccination documentation may also be requested when travelling abroad.

? I've had COVID-19, do I still need to get the vaccine?

After someone is infected with COVID-19 and has recovered, they may have some protection against COVID-19, but this immunity varies due to many factors such as severity of infection, age, medical conditions and vaccination history. For that reason, vaccination after a suggested interval from infection is recommended for best protection. People with both COVID-19 infection and vaccination are said to have “hybrid immunity” and have the best protection compared to either infection or vaccination alone.
