Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) is actively recruiting healthcare professionals to help keep communities safe as the province of British Columbia continues its COVID-19 response plan.
The COVID-19 vaccination is underway in B.C. and vaccines are being delivered throughout the province.
We need your help! VCH is actively planning the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine. In order to be ready to move quickly, we are creating staffing pools of individuals who are ready to work when help is needed. You will start working as early as March in one of our clinics.
VCH is recruiting for health-care professionals including registered nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses, community screeners and program assistants to assist in the vaccination campaign roll out across our organization.

Working at a VCH site during COVID-19
We are working closely with Vancouver Coastal Health sites and programs, the BC Centre for Disease Control, and the Public Health Agency of Canada to respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation. The critical steps to ensure the safety of our employees include early identification of cases, prompt isolation, testing and monitoring and executing proper infection, prevention and control practices within facilities. Our staff are vital to the health-care system, and in an effort to reduce the risk of transmissions in our workplace, COVID-19 Safety Plans have been created. The plans follow guidance from the BC CDC/WSBC/IPAC/Employee Safety in accordance with the hierarchy of controls.
We have taken extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of staff as well as patients, residents and clients across our organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We take this responsibility very seriously – your safety is our priority. All health-care workers whose roles require direct contact with patients, clients and residents are required to wear surgical/procedural masks, eye protection and gloves when providing direct care to patients, clients and residents across VCH. Equipping staff with an adequate supply of trusted and fully tested Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a top priority at VCH.
Full safety plans and training will be shared and included to all hired employees. We thank you for your willingness to help during this time of need.
