Where can I get the vaccine?

You can book an appointment with one of the following partner pharmacies to receive the vaccine. Please use the contact instructions provided when booking your appointment at a pharmacy. No walk-ins will be permitted.

I received my first COVID vaccine (AstraZeneca) at a pharmacy and I am under the age of 55 years. When will I get my second dose of vaccine?

Anyone under 55 years of age who received the AstraZeneca vaccine as their first dose will be contacted by the administering pharmacy with an appointment. PEI is recommending that an mRNA vaccine (either Moderna or Pfizer) be offered as a second dose for those who received AstraZeneca as a first dose. Individuals are able to choose to complete the series with AstraZeneca if they are unable to receive an mRNA vaccine due to a contraindication, or based on personal choice.

The following pharmacies indicated with the asterisk ** will continue to provide AstraZeneca vaccine as a second dose on request based on availability.

PLEASE NOTE: If you prefer to get your vaccine at a pharmacy and already have an appointment booked at a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic, please cancel your appointment at the clinic by calling 1-844-975-3303. It is important to cancel an unneeded appointment as soon as possible.
