British Columbia has announced a plan to provide COVID-19 booster shots for anyone who wants one six to eight months following their second dose.

The program will start with those with waning protection from their first doses and those more likely to end up in hospital.

The timing will be determined based on risk and British Columbians will be contacted when they are eligible to book a third dose.

Those over the age of 70 should expect to get a third dose before the end of the year, the province said. Health-care workers, long-term care residents and clinical extremely vulnerable people with immune issues are part of the first phase of boosters.

Indigenous populations will also be part of the first group of booster shots with an all-community approach.

Those who received AstraZeneca as a first or second dose will be offered an mRNA as their booster.
