Additional appointments for COVID-19 vaccination have been added at the Tower Mall site in central Vancouver. Another 160 appointments have been added for Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. This brings the total number of appointments up to 1,000 per day.
The appointments are available to anyone who is eligible in Phase 1a or Phase 1b Tiers 1-2. Those who are currently eligible to be vaccinated should seek appointments now, before additional groups become eligible on March 31. Everyone who is eligible now will remain eligible after March 31, but appointments may be more difficult to find as more people become eligible. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, visit www.FindYourPhaseWA.org.

The Tower Mall site is administering Pfizer vaccine. Second-dose appointments will automatically be scheduled for three weeks later at the same time, day of the week and location. Please ensure the time and day of week you select will work for your first- and second-dose appointments. Vaccines are free.
Those with appointments should arrive at the site at their appointment time. Arriving before the scheduled appointment time could lead to traffic backups and longer wait times.
Drivers should enter the site off North Blandford Drive between MacArthur Boulevard and Mill Plain Boulevard and exit onto North Devine Road. Walk-up patients will enter the site off East Mill Plain Boulevard between Blandford Road and Divine Road. Follow the directional signs for COVID-19 vaccine.
