Alberta Health Services’ online booking tool for COVID-19 immunizations will be temporarily down Wednesday morning.
The system is undergoing maintenance to improve capacity for booking and will prevent access from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Booking immunization appointments through Health Link will also be affected by this upgrade.
Access to Health Link/811 to speak to a registered nurse for medical advice will be unaffected and will continue throughout this upgrade. Access to the AHS website, including access to book COVID-19 swabbing tests during this time, will also remain unaffected.
Albertans are encouraged to access the AHS COVID-19 online immunization booking tool before, or after these hours while the upgrade will be taking place.
As an alternative to booking through the AHS COVID-19 online immunization booking tool, seniors 75 plus can contact a participating pharmacy. For seniors 75 and over, to find out which pharmacies near you are offering the COVID-19 vaccine, head to www.ab.bluecross.ca/news/covid-19-immunization-program-information.php.
