Dear Registrants,

Please see the below communication from Northern Health. Please note that this communication only applies to Naturopathic Doctors offering front line care in the Northern Health region:

The Ministry of Health has identified naturopaths [Naturopathic Doctors] as health care professionals providing direct patient care in acute and community health care settings (including home care) that are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 2 of BC’s COVID-19 Immunization Plan in March-April.
To book an immunization appointment, phone the Northern Health Call Centre at 1-250-645-8900, Monday-Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm. Let the Call Centre staff know that you are a Direct Care Provider so that they can identify you as eligible for the vaccine. You will be booked into a clinic in your community when one is available. Clinics do not run continuously in all northern BC communities.
If you are in Prince George, please start phoning for an appointment after Tuesday, March 23, as NH is putting additional clinics in place in PG to accommodate the demand.
Thank you.
