Important Information Before Your First Dose

Appointments must be booked through Alberta Health Services for patients that have undergone a double mastectomy or have bilateral lymph node damage / removal.

The COVID-19 vaccine cannot be administered within 14 days of any other vaccination. You must wait 28 days or more to receive any other vaccine after receiving a dose of COVID-19 vaccine. 

In order to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, you must be asymptomatic and not had a positive COVID-19 test result in the last 14 days.

The COVID-19 vaccination is a two dose vaccine. You will be booking an appointment for the first dose only.  You will receive a reminder when it is time to book your second dose from our pharmacy. 

Due to the limited availability of daily doses, you must contact the pharmacy immediately if you cannot make your scheduled appointment
