All adult grocery store workers now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine: Fraser Health

Fraser Health is calling on all grocery store workers 18 and up to register to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fraser Health encompasses communities stretching from Hope to Burnaby, and includes Delta, Coquitlam, Port Moody and Port Coquitlam.

Fraser Health is calling on all grocery store workers 18 and up to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 

The health authority, the largest in the province, said all adult grocery store staff are now eligible to receive either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, according to a press release issued Thursday morning.

Information on how to register for an appointment will be provided through employers or union representatives. 

Staff are required to provide identification and proof of employment, such as a pay stub or work ID, when they arrive to get a shot.

Meanwhile, the province's age-based vaccination campaign continues to target increasingly younger cohorts. As of May 6, the province is booking vaccination appointments for anyone 49-years-old or over.

Those deemed "clinically extremely vulnerable" as well as pregnant women 16 and over are also eligible to book an appointment. More information is available at the province's "Get Vaccinated" portal.

Further, anyone 40-years-old and over living in one of the province's "high-transmission" neighbourhoods — including such communities as Port Coquitlam, Squamish and Renfrew-Collingwood in Vancouver — is eligible to receive a vaccination. Enter your postal code here to see if you are eligible.
