Parents in New Brunswick can now vaccinate their kids between the ages of six months and five years with a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Eligibility has been expanded for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine where the Moderna vaccine was already available to children in this age group.

“Public Health continues to strongly recommend New Brunswickers stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines. This includes having young children get their initial vaccines and everyone else getting a booster when they are eligible,” said Dr. Yves Leger, acting chief medical officer of health. “This is especially important as we move indoors during the winter months and respiratory illnesses, such as COVID-19, are expected to rise.”

People can also get a booster which is available to everyone five years of age and older provided at least five months have passed since their last dose or COVID-19 infection, whichever date is more recent.

Public health and participating pharmacies are offering clinics with more information available online or by calling 1-833-437-1424.
