Health department issues guidelines for booking second dose – fr



Those who have received the Moderna vaccine will book through a separate process due to limited supply.

THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay District Health Unit has instructed people who will turn 80 or older this year on how to reserve a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This group is eligible to reserve their second dose starting at 8 a.m. Monday, after the province accelerated its previous schedule.

However, those who have received the Moderna vaccine will book through a separate process that will be made available later today, the health unit said in a statement on Sunday evening.

Those over 80 who have received the Pfizer vaccine can book as early as 8 a.m. Monday through the provincial reservation system or by calling 1-833-943-3900.

The online link for the Moderna second dose clinics will be provided on the health unit’s website on Monday afternoon, the agency said.

Second dose appointments will be available from the week of June 21 for those who received the Pfizer vaccine, and the week of June 28 for those who received the Moderna vaccine.

The discrepancy is due to timing issues with the supply of the Moderna vaccine, the health unit said.

“At this time, TBDHU cannot guarantee that the Moderna vaccine will be available the week of June 21,” he said.

Federal officials recently said they expected the company to deliver millions of doses less than it had promised by the end of June, as it struggles to increase production at its factories. in Europe.

The guidelines apply to those who have had their first appointment at CLE Coliseum through the TBDHU vaccination clinic.

More information on access to second doses will be provided in the coming days, the health unit said, including what to do for people who are unsure which vaccine they received for their first dose.
