Community pharmacists have played a pivotal role in vaccinating Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic. With guidance around COVID-19 vaccination evolving over time, this program aims to address questions that pharmacists may currently face in clinical practice: should we vaccinate individuals who have already have COVID? If so, when? Who is eligible for a first booster dose? Who is eligible for a second booster dose? Should adolescents receive booster vaccination?

The overall goal of the program is to increase pharmacists’ confidence in discussing COVID-19 vaccination with their patients and vaccinating eligible patients.
