An additional COVID-19 booster dose is now available to New Brunswickers considered most at risk for severe illness, the Department of Health announced Monday.

Public Health encourages the following people to get an mRNA bivalent vaccine booster dose if at least five months have passed since either their last vaccine dose or a COVID-19 infection:

People aged 65 and over, especially if unsure whether they’ve already been infected.
People aged 18 and over who are moderately to severely immunocompromised.
People living in long-term care facilities.
“Given the continued circulation of COVID-19 in Canada and elsewhere we continue to recommend all New Brunswickers stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines, including getting a bivalent booster shot,” Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health, said in a statement.
