The Moderna Spikevax Bivalent vaccine that targets both the SARS-CoV2 (the original “COVID-19 virus”) and the Omicron BA.1 variant is now available.

All Ontarians aged 18 and older can receive the bivalent vaccine as of September 26th. [Book an appointment]

The bivalent vaccine is being offered as a booster dose, so you can only get it if you have already completed a primary series.

Booster doses will be offered at a recommended interval of six months, or a minimum interval of three months, since the last dose (original or bivalent) received. To book an appointment at a three-month interval, please call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.
