Officials announced today, (Tuesday, June 1) that Albertans will be able to book their second dose of the COVID vaccine on a staggered basis.
Albertans will be able to schedule second-dose appointments in the order they received their first doses.
- Anyone vaccinated in March or earlier can book their second dose starting (today) June 1.
- Anyone vaccinated in April can book their second dose starting June 14.
- Anyone vaccinated in May can book their second dose starting June 28.
Those that received the AstraZeneca vaccine will have the choice to book a second AstraZeneca dose or choose the mRNA vaccine for their second dose.
Health Minister Shand says, "Starting on the day that you become eligible, you don't need to wait to hear from AHS, your physician, or your pharmacist you are able to make those appointments when you are eligible without waiting to hear from somebody."
The goal is for all Albertans, who wish to be so, to be fully immunized by September.
