AHS has a new booking system for certain vaccine appointments. You will need to register the person and then book an appointment. We are being told at this time, the 5-11 yr old will have to use this system to book in their COVID vaccines hopefully by mid-November. Please take the time to register them now – it will speed up the booking process later. https://bookvaccine.alberta.ca/vaccine/s/
