The WECHU is offering a limited number of appointments to get an additional COVID-19 XBB vaccination based on The Ministry of Health’s recommendation that the following individuals receive an additional dose this spring:

  • Adults 65 years of age and older
  • Adult residents of long-term care homes and other congregate living settings for seniors.
  • Individuals 6 months of age and older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised (due to an underlying condition or treatment).
  • Individuals 55 years and older who identify as First Nations, Inuit, or Métis and their non-Indigenous household members who are 55 years and older.

Eligibility and Recommendations

  • Individuals 6 months and older not previously vaccinated or who are in the process of completing their primary series remain eligible to receive doses per COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance.
  • Individuals whose health care provider has advised them to receive a dose at this time based on their health situation remain eligible.
  • Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine in Spring 2024 is particularly important for individuals at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 who did not receive a dose during the Fall 2023 program.

All other individuals are not currently recommended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine dose in Spring 2024 and should wait until further MOH recommendations. This includes individuals who are not at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and who did not receive an XBB COVID-19 vaccine in Fall 2023, unless they are specifically recommended to receive a dose by their health care provider.

Eligible individuals may receive an XBB COVID-19 vaccine in Spring 2024 if it has been 6 months from the previous COVID-19 vaccine dose or known SARS-CoV-2 infection (whichever is later). Individuals 6 months and older, may receive a COVID-19 vaccine simultaneously with or at any time before or after non-COVID-19 vaccines. There are two exceptions. COVID-19 vaccines should not be co-administered with the Imvamune vaccine (for Mpox) and the Arexvy vaccine for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). It is recommended to wait 4 weeks between COVID-19 and Imvamune, and 2 weeks between COVID -19 and Arexvy.

If you have questions about vaccines for COVID-19, contact your health care provider.
