Nunatsiavut Government: Revised tentative schedule for administering second dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine

Press Release

As a result of inclement weather this week, residents of the five Labrador Inuit communities are advised that Public Health staff from the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development have revised its planned schedule to begin administering the second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible residents, 18 years of age and older.

Below is the tentative schedule for administering the vaccine in each community:

  • Thursday, February 11 – Makkovik
  • Friday, February 12 and Saturday, February 13 – Nain
  • Sunday, February 14 – Rigolet
  • Monday, February 15 – Postville and Hopedale
  • Tuesday, February 16 – Hopedale

The Moderna vaccine requires two doses to be effective. The first dose was administered in all five Labrador Inuit communities the week of January 11. Public Health staff will arrange times for eligible individuals to receive the second dose. Those who have yet to receive the vaccine, and wish to do so, are asked to contact the Public Health Nurse in their respective communities.

The Nunatsiavut Government continues to work with all relevant authorities to ensure the vaccine is administered as quickly as possible in a safe and efficient manner.
