CA, 11 Jun 2021
Premier Jason Kenney announced on Thursday that Alberta is expanding eligibility for second dose bookings for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Effective immediately, Albertans who received a first dose in April or earlier can book their second dose through the Alberta Health website, by calling 811 or through participating pharmacies and physician clinics.
Those who received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose in May are currently scheduled to begin booking for second doses on June 28, but the province does say it will continue to accelerate second doses if supply allows.
There were 178 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the province on Thursday. There are currently 306 patients in hospital fighting COVID-19 with 81 in intensive care.
Alberta moved into Stage 2 of the “Open for Summer” plan on Tuesday that saw loosening of restrictions, including indoor dining, gyms reopening and greater outdoor gathering limits.
