Hello Burnaby Seniors,

On September 13th or shortly thereafter, we will need to have a BC Vaccine Card in order to access some events, services and businesses. You will NOT need one to go to grocery stores, pharmacies, fast food places, coffee shops and take out. For a full list of places you can go or can't go, google BC Vaccine Card.

If you need help getting the card and have a smart phone, Burnaby Neighbourhood House will help you get one on your smartphone.. Just attend one of their Computer Drop-in classes. Contact BNH at 604-431-0400.

Burnaby Neighbourhood House has also kindly volunteered to print one for those who don't have a smart phone or computer and printer.

You can also order a paper copy by phone and it will be mailed to you. Call 1-833-838-2323. Translators are available.

I hope this helps,

Lynda
for Voices of Burnaby Seniors Society
