Quebecers 35 years old and up can now book their COVID-19 booster shot
If you’re 35 years of age or older and have received your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least three months ago, you are now eligible for a booster shot.
Other groups eligible for boosters as of January 12 include Quebec healthcare workers and caregivers, immunocompromised people, those with certain health conditions, residents of isolated or remote communities, and pregnant women.

According to the government’s website, a booster dose of messenger RNA COVID-19 vaccine is “recommended to enable the immune system to re-establish a sufficient level of antibodies to compensate for the drop that may occur after a few months.”
As of January 12, 27% of eligible Quebecers have already received their third shot, according to Santé Québec.
While the boosters should become more widely available to younger age groups in the coming weeks, the provincial government says the additional dose is still not recommended for children under 12 on dialysis or who have weakened immune systems.
Registration for a booster dose will open for those aged 25 and up on Thursday, January 13.
