Albertans 18 years and older can book appointments to receive the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine by calling 811. Due to limited supply, the Janssen vaccine will only be administered at Alberta Health Services (AHS) clinics in select locations across the province.

“We have heard that some Albertans would consider getting protected if the Janssen vaccine was made available. We have made doses available and now we need these Albertans to follow through and get vaccinated," said Premier Jason Kenney.

“Whichever COVID-19 vaccine you receive, it’s important to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible and continue following the current public health measures to protect yourself and others," added Dr. Deena Hinshaw, chief medical officer of health.

The Janssen vaccine is currently a single-dose viral vector vaccine that works similarly to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
