The Co-op Pharmacy will be another clinic side for all COVID VaccinesCOVID vaccines will be available at the Co-op Pharmacy starting Dec. 2nd.
This includes dose 1, 2,3 and booster doses for people ages 12 and up.
We are not able to provide vaccines for kids ages 5-11 just yet, as we only have access to the Moderna Vaccine.
*Please note that if you already have an appointment and would like to get it sooner through us, please phone our Pharmacy at (250) 726-4342. We are open 9am-6pm.
Booster Doses Vs. Third DosesThird doses are currently recommended for people with weakened immune systems (immunocompromised) due to certain medical conditions or medications that they may be taking. In order to have the same response and protection to the virus, a third dose is recommended 28 days after their second dose.
It is recommended to get a booster dose of the COVID vaccine for people ages 18 and up at least 6 months after their first dose.
