    Alberta is speeding up its COVID-19 vaccine rollout by opening up bookings to eligible Albertans in Phase 2A of the vaccine program earlier than first anticipated.

    The province will begin offering vaccination appointments to Albertans 65 to 74 years old starting on Monday, March 15. This phase includes about 437,000 eligible Albertans, Health Minister Tyler Shandro said Thursday. Originally, the province estimated Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout would start in April.

    Shandro said the approach to booking vaccine appointments will be adjusted for the next phase, after issues with the website and 811 booking system arose when Phase 1B launched last month.

    Alberta Health said bookings will be offered in one-year intervals. On the first day — March 15 — anyone born in 1947 will be eligible to book their appointment. On Day 2 of Phase 2A, anyone born in 1948 can book their appointment and so on.

    First Nations, Inuit and Métis people 50 years old and older can also begin booking appointments starting on March 15.

    Shandro said Albertans can book an appointment through the online tool, by calling 811 or through participating pharmacies. Appointments will begin the same or following day, the province said.
