General information

New Brunswick has released an updated rollout plan to maximize the protection offered to New Brunswickers to prevent death and severe illness from COVID-19. With a recent increase in vaccine allotment, we will be using all vaccine available as a first dose by Canada Day, July 01, 2021 which will significantly improve protection for every New Brunswicker.

We are taking this approach following approval of additional vaccines, confirmation of more doses coming to Canada and new guidance on dose intervals indicating the second dose can be delayed to four months.

Expected timelines for our plan could be impacted and may change based on vaccine availability.

 The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone

There is no cost to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Public vaccination programs have saved lives and prevented infections in Canada and around the world for decades.
