COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
Alberta residents aged 18 and older are reminded that they have until 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 14 to receive their first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine and register online to get a $100 prefilled debit card.
If you haven’t got vaccinated because you have questions, please call 811 or speak to a trusted health-care worker. Have the conversation and get the facts from a trusted and credible source.
After vaccination, individuals can go to alberta.ca/VaccineDebitCard and register online to receive the prefilled debit card. Alberta Health will validate all registrations against provincial immunization data. CIBC will distribute the debit cards on behalf of the Government of Alberta.
As of Oct. 11, 152,063 Albertans have registered to receive the $100 prefilled debit card.
“Thank you to our health-care workers for everything they have done so far to keep Albertans safe and healthy. By getting your shot, you are helping to protect yourself and those around you while helping to ease the pressure on our health-care system so it can continue to treat Albertans in need. Getting the shot may not be easy for every Albertan. This incentive offsets some of the associated costs for Albertans. If you got a first or second dose during this time frame, make sure you register. If you aren’t fully vaccinated, book your dose today. If you have questions or concerns, speak to a trusted and credible health-care worker and get the facts.”
Debit cards are being mailed to Albertans throughout October. Additional eligible registrants will receive their cards in November and December.
Albertans who do not have access to a computer or a mobile device, and do not have anyone who can help with online registration, can phone 310-0000 for assistance.
