Pharmacies can go onsite to Independent Living (IL) facilities to provide COVID-19 vaccinations, but only to individuals who meet existing eligibility criteria. Residing in an IL facility is not in and of itself an eligibility criterion for a COVID-19 vaccination.
For any pharmacy looking to setup an other offsite flu clinic (not for LTC/AL), there will be an online ordering form available shortly after the campaign gets underway, but pharmacies should not set up these clinics until early November to ensure vaccine availability. For more information see Ordering and allocation of vaccines. Order form is not for LTC/AL.
ImmsBC data entry and payment
If you have not pre-registered residents into appointment slots in ImmsBC, register each individual as a walk-in on the date of the vaccination. To do this, open the individual’s profile and click the “Check-In” button to document their vaccination. Follow the instructions on clinic day procedures, checking in a client without and appointment.
Continue to document immunization records in ImmsBC for IL residents in the same manner as for individuals in the community. To trigger payment, immunization records must be entered into ImmsBC, under your pharmacy location set in your ICE “User Defaults”, and on the same date as the vaccine administration.
