Health Canada approves Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11
Health Canada has now approved the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages five to 11 years old. Parents can register children ages five to 11 in the provincial Get Vaccinated system. Parents will receive a text, email or phone call when it’s time to book a vaccine appointment for their kids.
The Province has been sending out invitations to people that are registered in the Get Vaccinated System and received their 2nd vaccine dose six months earlier.
To protect people most at risk, some people can get a second booster dose. A second booster offers extra protection against severe outcomes of COVID-19. You can get your second booster 6 months after the date of your first booster. People 70 and older, Indigenous people, as well as people living in long-term care are eligible
