This device will assist discover any open COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Edmonton

A new service for Edmontoners is looking for available COVID-19 vaccine appointments in town and notifying followers via Twitter.

On Wednesday morning, the Alberta government announced that it would enter phase 3 of its vaccine induction program starting this week. Phase 3 includes all Albertans over 12 years of age, so 3.8 million people can qualify for a vaccination.

From May 6, every Albertan citizen aged 30 and over can book an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccination through the Alberta Health Service or a participating pharmacy. On May 10, appointment bookings will be extended to all Albertans between the ages of 12 and 29.

Edmonton Vaccine Alerts Twitter account administrators emailed Daily Hive that they believe the city will see “a huge surge in vaccination bookings” in the next two weeks.

Account administrators monitor London Drugs, Walmart, Safeway, Sobeys, FreshCo, IGA, Thrifty Foods and other locations to find available vaccination appointments.

From there, they’ll post tweets with the location, type of vaccine, and dates that bookings are available, along with the link that Edmontonians can use to schedule their appointment at that location.

Pfizer appointments are now possible on the following dates at London Drugs Jasper Gates (14951 Stony Plain Road, Edmonton, AB, T5P 4W1):
