Once the people in Phase 1 have been immunized and additional vaccine supply becomes available, these groups will be prioritized for vaccination:

  • Adults 70 years of age and older, starting with those 80 years and older;
  • Adults who identify as First Nations, Inuit or Métis;
  • Staff, residents, and essential visitors at congregate living settings (shelters, group homes, transition houses, correctional facilities, and children or youth residential settings);
  • Adults 60 to 69 years of age;
  • Adults in marginalized populations where infection could have disproportionate consequences (e.g. people experiencing homelessness or with precarious housing arrangements);
  • First responders (including career and volunteer firefighters, police officers, border services, and search and rescue crew);
  • Frontline health care workers who were not immunized in Phase 1 and who may come into direct contact with patients (includes private health care workers);
  • People ages 16 to 59 who are clinically extremely vulnerable (as defined in the COVID-19 Immunization Plan and following consultation with their health care provider);
  • People who are required to regularly travel in and out of the province for work, including truck drivers and other rotational workers;* and
  • Frontline essential workers who have direct contact with the public and cannot work from home during Alert Level 5.

*People who live in Labrador or Quebec that cross the Labrador-Quebec border every day for work are not included in this group.
