Boosters are the best way to stay protected against any COVID-19 variant. This fall, everyone 12+ will be invited to get their second booster – for many that’s a fourth dose.
Getting boosted in the fall helps to protect you and your loved ones as we head into cold and flu season, when the risk of getting COVID-19 is likely the highest.
Get ready for fall 2022
B.C. is making plans to offer everyone 12+ a fall booster dose. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has been clear this approach will provide the best protection in the fall and winter when we’re all spending more time inside and respiratory illness is passed around our communities.
We’ll send you a personalized booking invitation this fall.
Understand your vaccine options
You will receive either the Moderna or Pfizer (mRNA) vaccine.
It doesn’t matter what vaccine you received for your initial vaccination series.
mRNA vaccines are the best choice for a booster dose because they provide the most effective protection against COVID-19.
If you’re 18 or older and would prefer a non-mRNA vaccine, you can get the Novavax vaccine or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
