COVID-19 vaccine appointments for children under five will be available for Albertans starting on August 2. 

“While most children are not at high risk of severe outcomes, children under five have higher risks than those age five to 11. I encourage parents and guardians to speak to a trusted health-care provider for questions about their child’s health, including questions about COVID-19 and immunization,” said Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw. 

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is the first to be authorized in Canada for use in children under five years of age. Its availability provides parents and guardians with a vaccine option to protect younger children against COVID-19.
