The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends that all individuals previously vaccinated against COVID-19 should receive a dose of an XBB.1.5-containing formulation COVID-19 vaccine, beginning in the fall of 2023.
A dose (with an XBB.1.5-containing formulation of COVID-19 vaccine) is recommended at least 6 months after:
completing the primary series
a previous booster
a COVID-19 infection
Booster doses in the fall are formulations updated to target more recent SARS-CoV-2 variants like Omicron XBB.1.5. Immunization is particularly important for those at increased risk of COVID-19 infection or severe disease, for example:
Adults 65 years of age or older
Residents of long-term care homes and other congregate living settings
Individuals with underlying medical conditions that place them at higher risk of severe COVID-19
Individuals who are pregnant
Individuals in or from First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities
Members of racialized and other equity-deserving communities
People who provide essential community services
Talk to your healthcare professional if you have any questions.
