Health Canada says it is now conducting a “complete, independent and evidence-based review of the submissions.”

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has recommended a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for high-risk Canadians, such as residents of long-term care homes, and those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised.


Earlier this year Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the country would receive 35 million booster doses from Pfizer.

Health Canada says that NACI will continue to monitor evolving evidence regarding booster doses for both the major population and the general public and will update guidance as needed.
