When am I considered to be fully immunized?

You are considered fully immunized 14 days after you have received the full series of a COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada or a combination of two different COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada; currently those are:

  • 2 doses of AstraZeneca or COVISHIELD

  • 2 doses of Moderna

  • 2 doses of Pfizer

  • 2 doses of a combination of COVID-19 vaccines (AstraZeneca, COVISHIELD, Novavax, Moderna and Pfizer)

  • 1 dose of Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)

  • 2 doses of Novavax Nuvaxoid

  • 2 doses of Medicago Covifenz

  • 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization but not approved by Health Canada (including Covaxin, Sinovac and Sinopharm)   

If you received 1 or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that's not approved by Health Canada and not authorized by the World Health Organization, you’re not considered fully vaccinated and need to complete one of the series above to be considered fully vaccinated.
