Everyone 18 and Plus Can Book for COVID-19 Booster 5 months after Their 2nd Dose

Lisa C. COVID-19, Updates

Vaccine effectiveness against infection may decline over time – especially with the highly transmissible Omicron variant – but they remain the best way to prevent severe illness and death. Third doses can boost immunity to improve protection and limit spread.

Everyone 18 and older can get a third dose 5 months after their second dose.
  • Eligibility: Everyone 18+ can book at least 5 months after second dose.
  • How to book: Book online (pharmacy or AHS clinic), call 811, or contact a physicians’ office. Clinics also available on reserve.
  • Vaccine: Take the first mRNA vaccine available to you. Both Pfizer and Moderna offer a high level of protection. People 18 to 29 will be offered the Pfizer vaccine.
