Proof of residence to be required for vaccines in B.C. following queue jumping allegation
British Columbia's Health Ministry says there will be measures in place to make sure people don't jump the queue for the COVID-19 vaccine when it begins immunizing the general public.
The ministry says in a statement that part of the process for Phase 3 and 4 of the plan will require evidence of age and residence in B.C.
It says no one in the general public will be able to pre-register for an appointment until their age category is eligible.
Rod and Ekaterina Baker, a Vancouver couple, drew public condemnation after allegedly flying to a remote Yukon community to get a dose of the vaccine before it was their turn.
