Children and babies in Alberta are now eligible to receive a dose of the Moderna Spikevax vaccine.
Health Canada approved Moderna's vaccine for infants and preschoolers in mid-July.
Alberta is the last jurisdiction in the country to open up vaccine eligibility to the age group, making the announcement on Friday.
The recommended dose for children ages six months to 11 years is a series of two doses, with an interval of at least two months between each shot.
First-dose appointments must be booked through the Alberta Vaccine Booking System or by calling Health Link at 811.
The doses given to young children are only about a quarter of the amount administered to adults.
