Covid-19 Boosters for Kids

Appointments for COVID-19 booster vaccines for children aged five to 11 will be available starting this morning.

The provincial government says people will be able to book through the province's vaccine portal starting at 8 a.m.

Parents can also book through their local public health units, as well as some pharmacies and health-care providers.

Earlier this month, Health Canada approved the Pfizer vaccine for a third dose for that age group, to be administered at least six months after the second.
