Vaccination programs

  • COVID-19 vaccination began in Canada on December 14, 2020.
  • You’re currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination if you’re 6 months of age or older and you don’t have contraindications to the vaccine.
  • The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) issues statements with recommendations on the use of COVID-19 vaccines. Briefly, NACI recommends:
    • a complete primary vaccine series to provide protection against COVID-19
    • booster doses after completing the primary series to restore or improve protection against COVID-19. Please refer to the COVID-19 vaccine chapter of the Canadian Immunization Guide for more details on:
      • booster eligibility
      • timing of a booster dose
      • recommended products
  • In their statement, Guidance on COVID-19 vaccine booster doses: Initial considerations for 2023, NACI recommends a booster dose.
    • for eligible individuals who haven’t received one since the start of fall 202
    • 6 or more months after the previous COVID-19 vaccine dose or SARS-CoV-2 infection (whichever is later), as more time between exposures to vaccine or infection may result in a better immune response
    • using, preferably, bivalent Omicron-Containing mRNA COVID-19 vaccines
