Eligibility for COVID-19 boosters and second boosters
Labrador-Grenfell Health will be offering COVID-19 booster doses for adolescents aged 12-17 in schools over the coming weeks. To be eligible for the booster dose, at least 22 weeks must have passed since the completion of the primary series doses. If your child is unable to receive the booster during the scheduled school dates, appointments can be booked online or through your local Public Health office as of May 16th.
Effective Monday, April 25th a second booster dose is available to individuals:
- aged 70 years and older
- living in a congregate living setting for seniors, including long-term care, personal care homes, community care homes, and assisted living facilities
- aged 18 years and older who identify as Indigenous or live in remote or isolated communities.
To receive the second booster dose, at least 20 weeks must have passed since receiving the first booster dose.
If you live in Labrador West, Goose Bay, St. Anthony, Flower’s Cove, Roddickton, or surrounding areas, you can book your second booster dose online using Pomelo Platform or by calling toll-free 1 833.960.3643. If you live outside of these communities, call your nearest Public Health office to book your vaccine or booster appointment.
You can still receive a COVID-19 vaccine (primary series and booster doses) if you have had COVID-19. Before vaccination, you should be considered recovered and your symptoms should be completely resolved.
Even after getting a vaccine or booster, it’s important to continue to follow all public health guidelines to help protect yourself, your loved ones, and your communities.
