IQALUIT, Nunavut — Nunavut has started offering COVID-19 vaccine boosters to residents who are ages 12 and older.

People who want the third shot must have received their second dose of vaccine at least six months ago.

The territory's chief public health officer, Dr. Michael Patterson, says the booster will help increase people's immunity to COVID-19.

There are currently no active cases of COVID-19 in Nunavut.

However, masks are mandatory across the territory.

Residents need to call their local health centre to book their shot.
