WDGPH: Anyone 18 years-old and up now eligible for drop-in booster doses

WELLINGTON COUNTY – Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has expanded eligibility for drop-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics as of Jan. 14.

Booster dose drop-ins

Those who are at least 18 years of age and older are now eligible to drop-in to a vaccine clinic and receive a third COVID-19 vaccine dose, provided 84 days has passed since a second dose. Previously the age limit was restricted to those at least 60 years-old.

First/second dose drop-ins

Anyone aged five and up is eligible to drop-in for a first or second dose, provided at least 21 days have elapsed between first and second doses. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommends allowing eight weeks between first and second doses.

For children aged five to 11, a child-sized formulation of Pfizer will be administered.

For those aged 12 to 29, an adult Pfizer dose will be administered.

Adults aged 30 and over will receive Moderna for their vaccines because of local Pfizer supply limitations.
