Depending on your age, here is when you are able to change your second dose:

  • June 15: 50 years and up

  • June 18: 35 years and up

On June 7, the government announced that the option to advance the administration of the second dose would only be available for Pfizer recipients for "the time being."

The government asks that you "be sure to keep the minimum interval of 8 weeks between your two doses."
