Covid vaccines available at 9 Red Deer pharmacies – Locations and contact information

Published on

From the Province of Alberta

COVID-19 immunization program

To ensure fair access to all Albertans needing to be immunized and to prevent unnecessary wastage of vaccine doses please book ONLY one appointment per person. Do not book multiple appointments at multiple sites.

Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through a pharmacy?

Pharmacies are able to offer immunizations to seniors 75 years of age and older (born in 1946 or earlier) living in the community.

Alberta Health Services will offer the vaccine directly to residents in retirement centres, lodges, supportive living and other congregate living facilities.

Where can I get the vaccine?

Below is a list of participating pharmacies. You must book an appointment with the pharmacy closest to you to receive the vaccine. No walk-ins will be permitted.

Due to limited vaccine quantities and storage and handling requirements, only select pharmacies in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary are able to participate in the vaccine rollout at this time. Once there is adequate COVID-19 vaccine supply, distribution will be expanded.

Pharmacies are listed in alphabetical order.

Surge in demand as more Alberta seniors eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

Published on

CALGARY — Alberta Health Services says more than 12,000 seniors born in 1946 and earlier have booked appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations so far this morning.

Chief medical officer of health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, has said there are 230,000 Albertans in that age group and has urged those eager to get their shots to be patient as there will be hiccups along the way.

Shortly after bookings opened, several people on social media complained about the appointment website crashing and calls not going through to the province’s 811 Health Link line.

The Calgary Police Service told people via Twitter to exercise caution and not to call 911. 

The provincial health agency says additional staff are on hand to handle the surge in call volumes to 811. 

The agency is urging people not to call hospitals or clinics directly to book appointments, but notes work is underway to make vaccines available at pharmacies.
