All Albertans 18 and older can now get COVID-19 vaccine boosters.

The province shared the news on Tuesday morning, outlining that adults in the province who received their second COVID-19 vaccine at least five months ago can now book a third dose.

Appointments for third doses can be booked online with pharmacies or AHS by using the Alberta vaccine booking system or by calling AHS at 811.

“There is still a lot that we don’t know about Omicron. But one thing we do know is that the most powerful protection from this highly contagious variant is to get a booster shot,” says Premier Jason Kenney.

“I urge all Albertans to step up and protect themselves and the healthcare system with a booster as soon as they can.”

Alberta health officials reported nearly 900 new cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant on Monday, pushing confirmed cases past the 1,000 mark.
