There's new advice on who should be getting COVID-19 vaccine booster shots and when.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization is now strongly recommending boosters for all Canadians over the age of 50.

It's also strongly suggesting boosters for anyone who got two shots of the Oxford-AstraZeneca or Janssen vaccines, First Nations, Inuit and Metis people and front-line health care workers.

With the emergence of the Omicron variant, NACI is also suggesting booster shots may be offered to 18 to 49 year olds, but not until at least six months has passed since their second dose.
