Getting your second dose

The second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine helps the immune system to produce a stronger immune response for a longer period of time. Watch Dr. Nel Wieman, Deputy Chief Medical Health Officer (First Nations Health Authority) address why it is important to get both doses.

Getting your booster or third dose

Each time you get a COVID-19 vaccine, it boosts your immunity and increases your protection. Over time, your immunity will go down. Boosters bring your protection back up again.

COVID-19 Prevention

Your personal toolkit to prevent COVID-19

As public health measures are lifted, it’s important to remember that we have many tools, such as vaccines, treatments and our own actions that can protect us from the impacts of COVID-19.

You can determine how and when to use these tools while supporting your family’s overall physical and mental health. These tools will help everyone be safer from COVID-19 and other illnesses, and they are even more important if you are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.

If you have symptoms

When Sam fell sick with COVID-19, they self-isolated for the number of days recommended by public health. Sam stayed in their room as much as possible and wore a mask when taking care of their kids and Grandma. 

Follow Sam's journey to learn more about what to do if you have COVID-19.
