Recommendations on a third dose of the COVID vaccine
Both the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and the Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) recently released their recommendation on a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for individuals who are immunocompromised.
The Arthritis Society supports these recommendations. In order to protect the health and safety of people living with arthritis, we encourage all provinces to implement comprehensive recommendations that will best support immunocompromised patients.

We are in regular communication with arthritis stakeholders and governments to ensure high-risk immunocompromised patients are protected. We will update our COVID-19 webpage if/when more information becomes available.
