Monovalent boosters protects individuals against one strain of COVID-19 (the current predominant strain).
- Our clinics are administering the Pfizer monovalent booster

- 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

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
