COVID-19 VACCINES IN CANADA
The vaccines are being distributed on a priority basis in order to protect those most at risk, based on ethical and equitable principles as laid out by guideline committees and task forces.
You will not miss your chance to get the vaccine when a new phase of your region’s vaccination roll out starts. Once you become eligible, you are always eligible.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free and is not mandatory, but is strongly recommended for all eligible persons unless there are specific (limited) medical reasons. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your healthcare provider.
The best COVID-19 vaccine to get is the first one that is available to you.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two doses, several weeks apart. Remember when your second dose is due and make sure you receive it.
Keep your proof of immunization safe.
Even if you have received the COVID-19 vaccine, the latest public health recommendations remain in place and still apply to everyone.
While everyone else is getting vaccinated, we must continue to stay 2 metres apart, wear a mask, wash our hands, quarantine if we have a significant exposure to someone with COVID-19 and isolate if we have symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.
