Please see the below communication from Vancouver Coastal Health:
As COVID-19 vaccines continue arriving each week and the campaign expands across our region for identified priority populations, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) is working to build our capacity to deliver these immunizations in an effective and efficient manner.
At this time, we are building a pool of naturopathic doctors who are interested and available to support immunization teams at VCH-operated clinics in each of the communities that we serve – Richmond, Vancouver, the North Shore, Sunshine Coast, Sea to Sky corridor, Powell River, Bella Bella and Bella Coola.
*If you have previously submitted another expression of interest, please still complete the survey above. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please note that we do not anticipate everyone included in this pool to be solicited. Deployment will be contingent on actual needs, which may vary as the staffing process for our clinics is finalized and remains responsive to vaccine supply. Nonetheless, your offer of support to ensure that we are as prepared as possible is greatly appreciated.
Eligible individuals will be contacted as needed to confirm appropriate licensure and training prior to deployment. Training does not have to be completed in advance of submitting your expression of interest.
- Patient Assessment
- Vaccine Preparation
- Post-vaccine patient monitor
- All immunizers are expected to meet BCCDC Immunization Competencies for BC Health Professionals. Refer to the BCCDC website for immunization course, guidelines and resources.
On-site orientation and training will be provided upon deployment.
If you have any questions, please contact COVID19ImmunizationTeam@vch.ca.
