The Moderna vaccine is being given to adults 30 years of age and older at regional vaccination clinics. Pfizer is not currently available for this age group. Residents are strong encouraged to take the first mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) available to them. Moderna is safe and highly effective, and there is emerging evidence that Moderna induces somewhat higher antibody levels and its protection may be more durable than Pfizer.

Residents can book an appointment for a vaccine at a regional vaccination clinic on the Region of Waterloo website: regionofwaterloo/GetaVaccine
