If you bring a current prescription or medication bottle (Note the prescription does not need to be filled where you are getting your vaccine, just presented at that time to prove you are on a qualifying medication.) The medication list by class is below, unfortunately it is impossible to list all the qualifying medications here without tripling the length of this post. If you have questions as to your eligibility please call me at 519-712-8800

High Dose steroids for long term use, antimetabolites, Calcineurin inhibitors, JAK inhibitors, Anti-TNF agents, certain antiinflammatories, Anti-CD20 inhibitors, IL-1RA agents, anti interleukin agents, selective T-Cell blockers and S1PR agents.

I know that this list is complex but we are here to help. Please call me to discuss your eligibility for a 3rd dose.

Stay Safe and have a great week!
