Starting on May 10, all Albertans 12 and older (born in 2006 or earlier) can book an appointment for the vaccine.
All Slave Lake pharmacies are participating in the program. As of May 5, Rexall had Moderna, Apple Drugs had AstraZeneca, and the others had Pfizer. Appointments are limited by supply. The Blue Cross list as of 5 p.m. on May 5 had appointments ranging from May 5 to four weeks at pharmacies. Most appointments booking is online.
For details on availability and for links to the various pharmacies, see https://www.ab.bluecross.ca/news/covid-19-immunization-program-information.php. (Editor’s note: The search for Slave Lake doesn’t seem to work, but the map on the website does. Although Shoppers Drug Mart is off in the jack pines).
Slave Lake also has an AHS vaccination station in the old fire hall. All vaccinations require an appointment. To register with AHS, go to https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/page17295.aspx or call 811.
