Our NW Calgary pharmacy team makes it a priority to keep you, and the community safe. You are required to wear a mask, sanitize and maintain social distance, when visiting our clinics.

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine has arrived at a Calgary pharmacy

The COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing illness and reducing symptom severity. They are being administered in phases, addressing the most at-risk first. Currently, we are accepting anyone 65 and over.

If you are not in that age bracket, keep an eye on the Alberta government site to see when you will be eligible for yours.

The Guadian Royal Vista Pharmacy near Royal Oak and Rocky Ridge is offering the AstraZeneca vaccines, which take about 15 minutes to administer. Once you have received your first shot, one of our team members will book you in for your second dose.

What to bring with you

You are not required to bring anything other than your Alberta Health card to your vaccination appointment. Having a mask on hand would be helpful in reducing waste, but we do have some available if you forget yours at home.
