    Albertans will be able to start booking their appointments for a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine as early as Tuesday, as supply has steadily been increasing.

    Premier Jason Kenney announced that for those vaccinated in March or earlier, booking for second dose appointments opened on June 1.

    Albertans who got their first dose of vaccine in April can book their second starting June 14.

    By the end of the month – June 28 – those who got their first shot in May can start booking their second dose appointments.

    “Bookings for second doses will be sequenced in the order that first doses were administered to ensure that everyone receives them at significantly less than the maximum 16-week interval,” Kenney said.

    “If there are no unexpected delays to shipments, we expect most everyone awaiting their second dose should have it by the end of summer.”

    Kenney said the province will continue to prioritize first dose appointments to ensure those who haven’t gotten their initial shot but want one, can do so.
