Get Vaccinated. It’s Easy and Safe.

If you haven’t got vaccinated because you have questions, call Health Link 811 or speak to a trusted healthcare worker.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and there has never been a more important time to get vaccinated to protect yourself, your loved ones and our healthcare system. Have the conversation and get the facts from a trusted and credible source. All Albertans can now book appointments online at bookvaccine.alberta.ca or by calling Health Link 811, or find walk-in clinics at albertahealthservices.ca/vaccine.

Every Albertan who can get vaccinated, should get vaccinated

Vaccines make our immune systems stronger by building antibodies to help prevent and fight off diseases. Because COVID-19 is a new virus, no one has natural immunity. It is much safer and more effective to get immunized than it is to get infected.

Albertans born in 2009 or before and those who have recovered from COVID-19 should get vaccinated. Consult your doctor first if you have questions about the vaccine or your health conditions. Children under 12 (born 2010 or after) do not get vaccinated nor do those with severe allergy to vaccine ingredients.

Vaccine safety

Thanks to worldwide collaboration, COVID-19 vaccines were developed quickly without compromising safety. Every approved vaccine has met Health Canada's strict standards for safety, quality and effectiveness. All vaccines are safe, effective and save lives.
