SECOND DOSE INFORMATION

If you received your first dose with us, you have a placeholder appointment for a second dose. We take these placeholders seriously. We’ve got you covered for your second dose. We will follow up with you with details on how to book your second dose appointment based on the timelines established by the province.

Second doses are being made available at a shortened interval based on availability of vaccine supply. 

Beginning June 4, 2021, following the guidance of the Ontarian government, individuals who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine can choose to either receive a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine receive or an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) for their second dose unless otherwise advised by a care provider.

 

Please note:

 

  • The Bruyère vaccine clinic has the Moderna vaccine to administer as a second dose option for those who received AstraZeneca as a first dose.
  • We do not have AstraZeneca or Pfizer to give.
  • On June 14, 2021 the province announced that individuals who received AstraZeneca as their first dose, can now consent to get their second dose 8 weeks after their first

Individuals who received a first dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) should be offered the same mRNA vaccine for their second dose. If the same mRNA vaccine is not readily available, another mRNA vaccine can be considered interchangeable and should be offered to complete the vaccine series.

 

VACCINE TYPE

At this time, the Bruyère COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be providing the Pfizer-BioNTech and the Moderna vaccine.

 

Vaccine eligibility is determined in consultation with Ottawa Public Health and our ability to administer the vaccine is based on supply which may be subject to change.
