  • The Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre has started to deliver auto dial messages from Dr. Moore targeting all individuals who are eligible for their booster dose but who have not yet booked one.

  • 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.
