The COVID-19 Vaccine Information Sheet is available in multiple languages.

Why should you get vaccinated?

Vaccines make our immune systems stronger by building antibodies to help prevent and fight off diseases. Because COVID-19 is a new virus, no one has natural immunity. It is much safer and more effective to get immunized than it is to get infected.

Vaccination is voluntary but getting vaccinated keeps ourselves and others safe and ensures we can return to normal sooner. It may help prevent you from getting infected and protect you from getting severely sick if you do get it.

Who should get vaccinated?

Every Albertan who is eligible should get vaccinated. Even if you have recovered from COVID-19 you should get vaccinated to boost your immunity.

If you don’t have an Alberta Health Care card, you can still get the vaccine. Call 811 to book your appointment.

You don’t need Canadian citizenship to get the vaccine, just identification. Visit for a list of accepted ID.

What happens after you’re vaccinated?

Until most Albertans are protected by the vaccine, we must continue following all public health guidelines:

  • wear a mask;
  • stay 2 metres apart;
  • wash your hands; and
  • stay home when you feel unwell.

AHS will notify you when you are eligible for your second vaccine dose.


  • If you have symptoms you must stay home and you should get tested. Visit to book your test online or call 811.
  • Financial support may be available if you’re unable to work because you are sick, required to isolate, or are caring for someone in isolation. Call 811 for more information.
  • Free hotel rooms and financial support are available if you must isolate due to COVID-19 but cannot do so in your own home. Call 211 for more information.
