Public health officials say they are working to resolve issues where names on British Columbia vaccination cards do not match names on people’s legal IDs.
âWe worked last week to resolve this issue,â Health Minister Adrian Dix said. âThe BC Immunization Card has been updated to ensure that the name displayed matches the name on your BC Service Card or combined BC Driver’s License and Service Card. “
The British Columbia vaccination card went into effect on September 13. British Columbians must provide proof of vaccination to access certain recreational and social spaces until at least January 31, 2022.
Dix said people whose names appear on their British Columbia vaccination card can now download a new one from the province’s website. Anyone with the wrong name on their BC service card or driver’s license can update it online or call Health Insurance BC at 1-800-663-7100.
To date, the province has said 2,987,031 people have downloaded the BC vaccination card and 4,031,909 people have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
