Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos updated Canadians on what it means to have "up-to-date vaccination" status, and urged Canadians who have already been boosted twice to receive a third booster.
"What exactly do we mean by up to date vaccination? Let me be very clear. Up to date means you've received your last dose in the last 9 months. If you've already received a first booster, that's great, and please see if you're eligible for a second or a third booster to remain up to date," said Duclos.
Duclos then urged those who have not gotten their booster to do so, saying that their efficacy has waned.
"While you might have gotten infected, risk is high you could get reinfected with all the downfall, including the risk of developing symptoms of long Covid. As health experts and physicians will tell you, it is critical that you go get the shot that's waiting for you," he said.
Duclos said that NACI has strongly recommended that all people 18 years of age or older get a booster six months after they've gotten their first shots, even if they've already had Covid.
