Booster vaccines available
Booster COVID-19 vaccines (3rd dose) are now available to Stoney Nakoda members – either seniors living in long-term care facilities or those with immunocompromised conditions, where six months have passed since their second dose.
Receiving a third dose will boost immunity levels and improve protection for those eligible.
Immunocompromising conditions that qualify:
- Transplant recipients
- Individuals with chronic kidney disease who are receiving regular dialysis
- Individuals in active cancer treatment (chemotherapy, immunotherapy or targeted therapies) excluding those receiving only hormonal therapy, radiation therapy or surgery
- People taking medication for certain autoimmune conditions
In addition, mRNA doses (Pfizer and Moderna) will be made available to Albertans who are traveling to a jurisdiction that does not accept
visitors who have been vaccinated with Covishield /AstraZeneca or mixed doses.
