Vaccine Roll-Out in NWT

NOTE: This information is subject to change, logistics and schedules continue to be adjusted. This schedule is being provided to show the latest planning and to set expectations with the caveat that things will continue to change as plans are finalized.

For information on the Moderna Vaccine or the NWT Vaccine Strategy please visit the GNWT COVID-19 Website.

COVID-19 vaccine will be offered to community members based on priority determined in the NWT Vaccine Strategy. The schedule below represents the latest detail available for clinic schedules, this schedule is updated as information becomes available and reviewed at least weekly. If information about your community is not available below, please check back for updates.

If you need information about vaccine opportunities in your community and dates are listed below, please contact your health centre for more information.

 

Important Note on Second Doses:

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is given as two doses into the muscle, with at least 4 weeks between the first and second dose. If the second dose is delayed, it is recommended that it be provided within 4 months after the first dose. Even if the first dose cannot be given within the recommended time frame you do not have to restart the vaccine series and the second dose can be provided as soon as you can even if it is after the recommended time period

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is reported to be 92% efficacious 14 days or more after the first dose, meaning residents with only one dose are already building strong protection against the disease.

 

Schedule for COVID-19 Vaccine in NWT

IMPORTANT NOTE: Vaccine is located in hub communities and accessed through regular process either at health centre or public health units.

For all communities we will be asking residents to contact your public health unit or health centre if you wish to receive vaccine; from there we will determine the best route to access. If there is enough demand we may plan for community visits to vaccinate individuals who have identified their want or need to be vaccinated.
