September 26, 2022: Individuals who are 18 years and older are now eligible to receive their Fall Boosters (bivalent).

Eligibility

Monovalent boosters protects individuals against one strain of COVID-19 (the current predominant strain).

  • Our clinics are administering the Pfizer monovalent booster
  • Ages 12 – 17: The Ontario Ministry of Health recommends 6 month interval between 2nd dose and booster – may receive booster if it has been at least 3 months since 2nd dose, and with informed consent
  • Ages 18+: Must have received 2nd dose at least 3 months ago
  • For individuals who recently had COVID-19 infection, should be at least 3 months since symptom onset or positive test (if asymptomatic)

Bivalent boosters protects individuals against two strains of COVID-19 (the original strain and the current predominant strain). The Ontario Ministry of Health recommends a Fall Booster 6 months since your last dose, regardless of how many boosters you have received. Moderna bivalent is available for these eligible groups:

  • Individuals who are 18 years and older
  • Individuals who are 12 years and older with moderately to severely immunocompromising conditions

Fall Booster (bivalent) for individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised:

  • Receiving active treatment (such as chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy) for solid tumour or hematologic malignancies
  • Solid-organ transplant recipients taking immunosuppressive therapy

  • Have moderate to severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Have stage 3 or advanced untreated HIV infection and those with AIDS
  • Receiving active treatment with specific immunosuppressive therapies, including anti-B cell therapies (monoclonal antibodies targeting CD19, CD20 and CD22), high-dose systemic corticosteroids, alkylating agents, antimetabolites, or tumor-necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors and other biologic agents that are significantly immunosuppressive

Other important information:

  • Timing of booster dose should be decided with your treating provider in order to optimize the immune response from the vaccine and minimize delays in management of your underlying conditions
