SECOND DOSE GUIDELINES

Current guidance suggests that the best interval for vaccine efficacy is eight weeks between first and second dose of Pfizer or Moderna. We suggest following this guidance, but will also offer vaccines according to the product guidelines (21+ days since first dose of Pfizer, 28+ days since first dose of Moderna).

If you meet this criteria, you are eligible to book one of our publicly-available appointments through our online booking site, or attend our clinic for a walk-in vaccine.

Starting December 15, this eligibility has been expanded to those age 18+ who are at least 84 days (approximately 12 weeks) since their second dose. Appointments for this category are opened daily, for two weeks in advance, typically between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.
