Walk-ins are available at select pharmacies.  Please check back frequently for openings due to cancellations and no shows. To better serve you, we are adding new appointments as vaccine supply becomes available. Please note: If a date is greyed out it means the day is either full or has not yet been released due to the guarantee of vaccine supply.

Second Dose Appointments

The COVID-19 vaccination is a two dose vaccine. Albertans are now able to schedule second-dose appointments based on when they received their first doses. Anyone vaccinated with their first dose can book an appointment for a second dose once 4 weeks have passed since their first dose.

Albertans who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine will have a choice to book a second appointment for a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine through one of our pharmacies.  It is recommended that individuals wait 8 weeks or more before booking their second dose for maximum effectiveness. 

All individuals must show their Alberta Health Care card to be eligible for their COVID-19 vaccine. Don't forget to wear a short sleeve shirt.

Important Information Before Your Dose

Appointments must be booked through Alberta Health Services for patients that have undergone a double mastectomy or have bilateral lymph node damage / removal.

The COVID-19 vaccine cannot be administered within 14 days of any other vaccination. You must wait 28 days or more to receive any other vaccine after receiving a dose of COVID-19 vaccine. 

In order to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, you must be asymptomatic and not had a positive COVID-19 test result in the last 14 days.

Due to the limited availability of daily doses, you must contact the pharmacy immediately if you cannot make your scheduled appointment

1. Review what to expect when getting your COVID-19 vaccination:

Flu 2020 masksBefore your appointment:
• Self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms.

At the pharmacy:
• Be prepared for screening before entering.

• Wear loose clothing with short sleeves.
• Arrive on time, not early.
• Limit the number of people going with you.

2. Find a safe waiting area post-injection. Patients must remain in the store for 15 minutes post-injection to monitor for anaphylactic reactions.

Side effects may include:

• redness, swelling, or feeling sore where you had the needle
• feeling tired
• headache
• fever or chills
• body aches or sore joints
