Pfizer Vaccine Shots
CHILDREN : For children aged 5-11 years: call to book an appointment: (905) 792 2211 Subject to vaccine availability.
For children, 2 doses of vaccine are effective and safe. NACI recommends first and second doses for kids 5-11 be spaced 8 weeks apart for higher peak and duration of immunity. The vaccine was studied in this age group spread 3 weeks apart and has shown to have minimal side effects. Waiting 8 weeks may leave children with less protection right now when cases are high. If choosing to give the second dose earlier than 8 weeks, please wait 30 days between doses.
BOOSTER SHOTS FOR COVID VACCINE: 18 years old and over:
3 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine provide more protection from getting and transmitting the Omicron variant than 2 doses.
All Ontarians 18+ are eligible for a 3rd dose 84 days after the second dose.
Patients at Brameast can schedule booster COVID vaccine (three months / 12 weeks / 84 days after 2nd COVID vaccine):
