This is our shot

Sleeves up, Yukon. The future is looking bright.

A safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has arrived in Yukon and suddenly there’s light on the horizon.

We’ve given more than 20,000 Yukoners their 1st dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Widespread immunization is the best way to protect yourself and your community. COVID-19 and its variants spread easily. You can pass it on even if you do not have any symptoms.

Of people diagnosed with COVID-19 in Canada, 1 in 13 have required hospitalization and about 3 out of every 100 have died. Even people with mild symptoms may feel unwell for a long time after a COVID-19 infection.

Safe and effective vaccines will reduce the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Over time, this will allow Yukoners to live with fewer restrictions.

Vaccine appointments

Appointments are available and encouraged. All clinics also accept drop-ins. If you miss the clinic in your rural community, call your local health centre to discuss your options.

Book your appointment or find information about drop-in times.

2nd vaccine dose

The Moderna vaccine requires 2 doses to be most effective. Everyone who received a 1st dose should receive a 2nd.

You should receive your 2nd dose approximately 28 to 35 days after your 1st dose as possible. Keep this in mind when planning to book your 2nd dose.

Bookings for 2nd dose vaccine clinics are now open.

Be sure to check back for information on when to book your 2nd dose.



Public health measures still in effect

Vaccines are our way out of this pandemic. However, as we roll out vaccines, public health measures will stay in place. This means that if you've received immunization in Yukon or outside the territory, you must:

We will eventually be able to reduce restrictions. When and how we do this depends on a significant number of Yukoners getting vaccinated, as well as ongoing developments.
