Foreign seafarers calling Canadian ports can now obtain Covid-19 vaccinations at key locations across Canada, including Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Montreal, Trois Rivieres, Quebec, Saint John, and Halifax. Canada is mainly offering two-dose vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna), although the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has become available at some locations in British Columbia.
Transport Canada recently issued revised guidance allowing seafarers to go ashore for a maximum of six hours, which should help facilate their ability to obtain a vaccination during this period. In all cases, seafarers engaging in shore leave (including for vaccination purposes) are expected to follow the advice of their employer, the Public Health Agency of Canada and local health authorities.
