About COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination

Vaccination programs, primary series and booster doses

Vaccination programs

  • COVID-19 vaccination began in Canada on December 14, 2020.
  • 7 COVID-19 vaccines are currently approved for use in Canada.
  • The National Advisory Committee on Immunization’s (NACI) recommendations on the use of COVID-19 vaccines can be found in the latest NACI statements.
  • People 6 months and older without contraindications to the vaccine are currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

Primary series

Primary series of vaccination refers to the number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that a person should receive to obtain initial protection. On this page, people are considered to have completed the primary series (referred as “fully vaccinated” in previous reports) once they have received all required doses. The number of doses depends on the specific vaccine product.

2-dose vaccines

For all 2-dose vaccines:
  • People who have received only 1 dose are considered partially vaccinated.
  • People who have received both doses are considered to have completed their primary vaccine series (referred to as "fully vaccinated" in previous reports).
  • Moderately to severely immunocompromised people who have received both doses and an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine are considered to have completed their primary vaccine series.

1-dose vaccine

For 1-dose vaccines:
  • People who have received only 1 dose are considered to have completed their primary vaccine series.
  • Moderately to severely immunocompromised people who have received 1 dose and an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine are considered to have completed their primary vaccine series.

Booster doses

A booster dose received after the primary series restores or improves protection against COVID-19.

NACI recommends a booster dose of an mRNA vaccine or Novavax Nuvaxovid® at least 6 months after the primary series is completed for members of the following populations:

  • A booster should be offered to:
    • adults 18 and older
    • adults living in long-term care homes for seniors or other congregate living settings that provide care for seniors
    • people who completed their series with only viral vector vaccines (AstraZeneca Vaxzevria/COVISHIELD or Janssen COVID-19 vaccines)
    • adults in or from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities
    • all frontline health care workers who have direct in-person contact with patients
    • adolescents 12 to 17:
      • with an underlying medical condition or at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 (including those who are immunocompromised and who received a 3-dose primary series)
      • who are residents of congregate living settings (such as shelters, group homes, quarters for migrant workers, correctional facilities)
      • who belong to racialized and/or marginalized communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19
  • A booster may be offered to:
    • adolescents 12 to 17

NACI recommends that jurisdictions prepare for the rapid deployment of a second COVID-19 vaccine booster dose program prioritizing certain populations.
