In September 2023, Health Canada approved an updated COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 6 months and older. This updated vaccine better protects against the new Omicron XBB variant. The Ministry of Health recommends getting the updated vaccine this fall if you have never received a COVID-19 vaccine or if you were previously vaccinated and it has been six months since your last COVID-19 vaccine dose or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection.
The updated COVID-19 vaccine is now available for everyone aged 6 months and older at no cost. Please contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment to get your vaccine. If you do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner, call 2-1-1 or click on the buttons below to book an appointment at a participating pharmacy or public health clinic.
We will continue to update this page as information is released from the Ministry of Health. Please continue to check back for the most up to date information.
Vaccination continues to be one of the most effective ways to protect ourselves against COVID-19. Evidence indicates that all of the vaccines used in Canada are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Since vaccine protection decreases over time, if it has been six months since your last dose, vaccination with the new formulation of COVID-19 vaccine is recommended to provide better protection against variants of concern.
According to the Ministry of Health, it is safe and convenient to receive the flu shot and the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time. Receiving both vaccines will help reduce your risk of getting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time. Having both illnesses at the same time could put you at a higher risk for severe illness. Ask your health care provider or pharmacist if they can administer both vaccines at your appointment.
