The move comes after the province announced a beef up in the supply of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Starting on Monday, April 5, those eligible can book online at LondonDrugs.com/covid19, according to a news release from the drug store.
The release states that 2,200 doses will be distributed among 20 London Drugs locations in the Lower Mainland, including the Garibaldi Village location, with additional supply expected in the coming weeks.
“With the overwhelming demand, we are happy to see the government now accelerating the distribution of the vaccine through our pharmacies,” said Chris Chiew, general manager of pharmacy at London Drugs, in the release.
Everyone wanting an appointment must go through the same online booking system.
“We are doing everything we can to quickly respond to changing vaccine supply and help the government ensure a widespread, easily accessible and equitable vaccination campaign as we do every year for flu,” said Chiew. “Thank you to our customers and patients for their patience. And to our pharmacy staff for their early efforts in what will be one of the largest public immunizations efforts ever undertaken in the province.”
