Will international students be able to get vaccinated in Canada?
Yes. All people in BC can be vaccinated for free, regardless of length of stay or status, even if they will be here for only one dose (first or second). If a person has received a first dose of a two-dose vaccine regimen, while outside BC and then arrives in BC, they can bring their vaccination record from their first jurisdiction (with information about which vaccine and when it was administered) and request their second dose in BC. A doctor will determine the appropriate second vaccine. If a person brings the vaccine for their second dose with them into BC, a doctor will determine whether it can be administered in BC, depending on the vaccine and how it was transported. Everyone who is vaccinated in BC will receive a vaccination record, which they can present in BC or elsewhere to show what vaccine they received and when.
