Second Dose of Vaccine

You will receive an mRNA vaccine (either Moderna or Pfizer) at the clinic depending on supplies and age eligibility. If you had Moderna or Pfizer for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna or Pfizer for your second dose for strong protection against covid 19. If you had AstraZeneca for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca for your second dose for strong protection.

Accelerating second doses

A stable and reliable supply of covid 19 vaccines has allowed the province to quickly expand eligibility and access to Ontarians to receive the vaccine ahead of schedule, providing a strong level of protection against the virus.

Ontario is now accelerating second doses for eligible Ontarians.

Your appointment for your accelerated second dose must be at least:

  • 8 weeks after your first dose of AstraZeneca with informed consent
  • 28 days after your first dose of Moderna or Pfizer

Which vaccine you can get

All Health Canada approved vaccines provide strong protection against covid 19 and its variants, including the Delta variant.

Vaccines can be safely mixed for a first and second dose. To ensure maximum protection, you are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as you can and to receive your second dose within the recommended interval.

If your first dose was:

  • AstraZeneca: you can get AstraZeneca, Moderna, or Pfizer for your second dose when you are eligible and it’s at least 8 weeks after your first dose with informed consent.
  • Moderna or Pfizer: you can get either Moderna or Pfizer when you are eligible and it’s at least 28 days after your first dose. You can switch between Moderna and Pfizer safely.

When you can book an appointment

Second dose appointments will be based on the timing of your first dose, on a “first-in, first-out” basis.

If your first dose was AstraZeneca

If your first dose was the AstraZeneca vaccine, for your second dose you can choose to receive either:

  • a second dose of AstraZeneca
  • one of the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna)
