The type of vaccine available at a clinic can change depending on a number of factors, but all vaccines are safe, effective and approved for use in Canada. All vaccines available in Canada are extremely effective at preventing serious illness and hospitalization.
With a continued increase of COVID-19 variants of concern, additional steps are being taken throughout the province to offer vaccine to younger age groups to keep immunizations progressing as quickly as possible. In order to accomplish this, the Pfizer/BioNTech will be introduced to all current and future drive-thru immunizations clinics. This change will help to remove any vaccine-related age-barriers that prevent immunization of younger residents.
