How many doses of COVID-19 vaccine does my child need?

Question: 

How many doses of COVID-19 vaccine does my child need?

Answer: 
Children 6 months to 4 years of age will get 2 doses of the Moderna vaccine to complete their primary (initial) series. The second dose is offered about 8 weeks after the first. 
 
Children who are moderately to severely immunocompromised need 3 doses to complete their primary series. These children can get their second dose 4 to 8 weeks after the first. To book your child's third dose, you will be contacted by the provincial Get Vaccinated system about 4 weeks after they receive their second dose. 
 
Scientists are still determining if children 6 months to 4 years of age will need a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
