The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective at protecting individuals against severe COVID-19 infection resulting in hospitalization and death. Age-specific vaccine doses are approved in individuals aged 6 months and older. Additional details are provided below to help individuals maintain their protection through vaccination boosters.
With fewer public health measures in place, there is more emphasis on things that we can do. Get vaccinated, continue basic actions (stay home when sick and handwash) to reduce the spread, know your risk, and wear a mask when required or when it makes sense for you to add another layer of protection.
Where to Get Vaccinated
The booking system reflects a 30-day window of appointments. Additional appointments are added to the booking system so please check back often when you are eligible and the window to book an appointment is open. Access to the COVID-19 vaccine is available through scheduled clinics, participating pharmacies and select primary care providers.
