Per the Canadian Immunization Guide (CIG), the intent of a booster dose is to restore protection that may have decreased over time to a level that is no longer deemed sufficient in individuals who initially responded adequately to a complete primary vaccine series. Doses of the COVID-19 vaccines after the primary series are described as booster doses. However, over time, the nomenclature of this additional dose could evolve as the optimal number of doses in a primary series is better understood. Evidence is emerging that vaccine effectiveness against infection and
COVID-19 disease decreases with time, and the effectiveness of currently authorized COVID-19 vaccines against the Omicron variant and sub-variants is decreased. Therefore, booster doses are recommended for eligible individuals, to obtain stronger protection.
