Jul 26, 2022

New Brunswick parents can now book an appointment for their children between the ages of six months and five years to receive their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccination clinics will begin next week, the province announced Tuesday.

Health Canada authorized Moderna’s Spikevax vaccine for children in this age group on July 14.

Some provinces started offering shots last week.

Appointments for children aged two or older may be scheduled through a participating pharmacy or through a regional health authority’s online booking system, according to the Department of Health.

Appointments for children under two must be scheduled through a regional health authority’s online booking system, it said.

The government’s COVID-19 vaccines website has been updated but still contains incorrect information.
