Vaccination Booking Reminders

  • There are many appointments available. A list of upcoming clinics is available on our website. There is now enough supply for people to choose their brand of mRNA vaccine – either Pfizer (Adult brand for ages 12 plus) or Moderna. Walk ins are available at all clinics.

  • For convenience, we still encourage people to check with a participating pharmacy, or ask your doctor’s office about the vaccine if you are there for an appointment.

  • If you don’t feel well or have symptoms of COVID please do NOT attend your vaccine appt. You can receive the COVID-19 vaccine when you are 10 days after the start of COVID-19 symptoms (day 0) or the date that the positive test was done (day 0), whichever is sooner, and also that symptoms are improving, no fever for 24 hours and no GI symptoms for 48 hours. No need to rebook –just bring your confirmation to any clinic once recovered and we will get you in.

Vaccination Recommendations

  • Two doses of COVID-19 vaccination 8 weeks apart is recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) for children 5 to 11.

  • The province is considering how they will implement the recent National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommendations on 12 to 17 year booster dose of vaccine, and three dose primary series for children who have immune compromising conditions, then a three doses primary series is recommended – each dose 4 to 8 weeks part.
