July 2021 Vaccine Clinic Dates

Can a person mix vaccines/ get two different vaccines for their first and second dose?

Yes – mixing vaccines is safe, effective, and enables more Algoma residents to receive their second dose sooner.

Full vaccination is the greatest protection you can have against COVID-19 and its variants, including the Delta variant. 
If you had Moderna or Pfizer for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna or Pfizer for your second dose for strong protection. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are authorized for use in Canada and use a similar mRNA technology, so the vaccines are safe to mix.

  • This is consistent with recommendations recently provided by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and with practices within several provinces.
  • Both provide strong protection against COVID-19 and its variants.
  • Dose interval is 28 days.

If you had AstraZeneca for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca for your second dose for strong protection.

  • Getting a Moderna or Pfizer vaccine after the first dose of an AstraZeneca vaccine has been shown to provide a strong immune response, including against COVID-19 variants of concern.
  • Dose interval is 8-12 weeks, with informed consent.

If your second COVID-19 vaccine is different than your first dose, you do not need to start your series over again. You will be considered fully immunized two weeks after receiving two doses of Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccines.

Eligible groups for vaccinations in Elliot Lake are as follows: 

For First (1st) Doses:

  • Anyone aged 12+

If you or your child(ren) are between the ages of 12-17, please call the ELFHT directly to book an appointment, as this will ensure you are vaccinated sooner than if you book through the Algoma Public Health website.

For Second (2nd) Doses:

  • Anyone aged 12+, if it has been 21 or more days since your first dose

The ELFHT will be contacting everyone who received a first dose with us to arrange their appointment for a second dose, according to the date when their first dose was received. We are currently booking those who received their first dose in JUNE. If you don’t want to wait until our call, phone us at (705) 461-8882 and we may have appointment slots available. Please be patient with staff, as we are currently experiencing a high volume of calls.

If you did not receive a first dose with us but would like a second dose, please give us a call at (705) 461-8882.

Please check this web page or the ELFHT Facebook page for updates.
