Vaccines administered to inmates in the federal correctional system

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Correctional Service Canada (CSC) has implemented rigorous infection prevention and control measures at its sites. Vaccines provide an additional measure to limit the spread of the virus and is key to further protect everyone.

This chart outlines vaccines administrated to federal inmates from January 6, 2021 to July 25, 2021. As more vaccines are administered, CSC will provide further updates to this table. CSC has offered the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to offenders.
