FREDERICTON (GNB) – As of today, 41.6 per cent of New Brunswickers aged 12 or older are fully vaccinated and 78.5 per cent have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

All eligible New Brunswickers can book their second dose appointments if at least 28 days has passed since their first dose. They are encouraged to book an appointment for their second dose through a participating pharmacy or at a Vitalité or Horizon health network clinic.

To receive a second dose, bring a signed consent form, your Medicare card and a copy of the record of immunization provided after receiving your first dose.

Appointments for people who have not yet received their first dose continue to be available at regional health authority clinics and through participating pharmacies.

Mobile vaccination clinics

The provincial government has launched a series of mobile clinics for New Brunswickers who have not yet received their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Department of Health is working with Extra-Mural/Ambulance New Brunswick and partners from local government and the business community to organize these mobile vaccination clinics. The clinics will provide walk-in service. They are intended to bridge gaps in accessibility and convenience.

The first clinics are taking place this week at the following locations:

  • Centre des loisirs de Paquetville, 1086 du Parc St., Paquetville, on Wednesday, July 7, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Saint Andrews Town Hall parking lot, 212 Water St., Saint Andrews, on Thursday, July 8, between 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • Bowlarama, 2020 St. Peter Ave., Bathurst, on Thursday, July 8 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Fundy Arena, 6 Arena St., Blacks Harbour, on Friday, July 9 between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Bowlarama, 476 Gauvin Rd., Dieppe, on Saturday, July 10 between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

People attending a mobile vaccination clinic are asked to bring their Medicare card, a record of vaccination if receiving their second dose and a signed consent form. These clinics will be administering the Moderna vaccine, which can be used safely and effectively as either a first or second dose. Even if you received a different vaccine as your first dose, you can still receive Moderna for your second dose due to the interchangeability of COVID-19 vaccines.
