Through the high-risk older adult vaccine program, the Ministry of Health covers the full cost of the vaccine for the following adults aged 60 years and older who are:

• Living in:

- Long Term Care Homes

- Elder Care Lodges

- Retirement homes licensed to provide dementia care services

• Hospital ALC patients

• Receiving dialysis

• Transplant recipients (solid organ and stem cell transplants)

• Homeless individuals

• Indigenous individuals


Individuals aged 60 years and older who do not qualify for the free RSV vaccine can still purchase the vaccine with a prescription from their family doctor or other primary care provider. Some private insurers may cover all or part of the cost of the vaccine.
