Third COVID-19 vaccine doses are now available for
  • Seniors in congregate care facilities
  • Albertans with eligible immunocompromising conditions.

Seniors living in congregate care will be eligible to receive their third dose approximately 5 months after their second dose. Residents will receive their third doses at their facilities and don’t need to book appointments.

Albertans with eligible immunocompromising conditions can receive their additional dose 8 weeks after their second dose. A list of qualifying conditions is available at alberta.ca/vaccine.

If you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, appointments for first and second doses are still readily available through both pharmacies and Alberta Health Services. Book now at alberta.ca/vaccine

Word of the Day:

Congregate: shared, communal
