COVID-19 Immunization Program for physicians

For physicians interested in supporting vaccination efforts in Alberta, please visit: COVID-19 Immunization Program for physicians Expression of Interest.

Two options are available for community physicians and their partners to express interest in participating in the Alberta effort to deliver COVID-19 vaccinations.

For non-AMA member physicians, please request a form here. For partners such as PCNs wishing to submit an expression of interest, please work with a lead physician to log in to complete the online EOI form.

Before proceeding with either option, please read through and understand the mandatory requirements.

Option 1

Physicians may administer vaccinations at an AHS Rapid Flow Site (not unlike how COVID-19 swabbing occurs). If you have already provided your information to AHS, it is requested that you provide the information again by completing Option 1 of the EOI form.

Option 2

Physicians may offer a community clinic/site, perhaps in conjunction with partners such as your Primary Care Network or pharmacy. If you wish to explore this option please be familiar with the mandatory requirements before completing Option 2 of the EOI form.

Recommended learning materials for Alberta immunization clinics

The COVIDtoolkit.ca is a website that has materials to help primary care clinics as they support the COVID-19 immunization effort and plan for their clinic to become an immunization site. Alberta-specific content has been integrated into this toolkit.

The toolkit has been developed through a pan-Canadian collaboration and aligns with PHAC guidelines.
