Episode #68: Bivalent Vaccine Booster


Welcome to a brand-new episode of the Borderless Voices podcast presented by the FCJ Refugee Centre.

Ontarians aged 18+ are eligible for a bivalent COVID-19 booster dose. Based on guidance from Health Canada and the National Advisory Committee on Immunization, the Ontario government is offering the bivalent COVID-19 booster dose to all Ontarians aged 18 and over.

The bivalent COVID-19 booster is a safe and effective way for people to better protect themselves against the most recently circulating COVID-19 variants in Ontario.

Appointments can be booked through the COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900. And if you don’t have OHIP, send us an email with your request at vaccine@fcjrefugeecentre.org. Of course, we will help you to book your appointment.

With the start of the respiratory illness season, it is especially important people stay up to date with their vaccines.

The bivalent vaccine, along with continued access to testing and antivirals and updated public health guidance, gives Ontarians the tools they need to make the best decisions for themselves on how to stay safe, healthy and out of hospitals as the province continues its efforts to support the recovery and rebuilding of our health system.

The time is now. Get your booster!
