Ajmera Transplant Centre's guidance regarding COVID-19:

  • Transplant patients can safely get the bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccine. If you have had a COVID infection or COVID vaccination, please wait at least 6 months from your last dose or infection. Patients may receive the XBB COVID booster when it is available in Fall 2023.
  • All transplant patients should have received a minimum of three doses of vaccine as their primary series. If you have not received a third dose, you should receive it immediately.
  • COVID vaccines can be given at the same time as the flu shot. High dose flu shot is the preferred option for transplant patients.
  • COVID cases continue to spread in the community, causing severe disease particularly in the unvaccinated and immunocompromised.
  • Although many restrictions have lifted across Canada, we are asking all transplant patients to continue with strict precautions to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19. Wear a mask when going out, gather only in small groups and with fully vaccinated people.
  • If you are an Essential Care Partner (ECP) visiting a patient at our Centre, we kindly remind you that mask-wearing continues to be mandatory as we must continue to protect our patients.

  • If you are a transplant patient at UHN, and require a letter confirming your patient status to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose, please submit your request to
  • The antiviral oral medication Paxlovid is available in Canada for certain groups. This drug can cause severe interactions with some transplant medications. Please, do not take Paxlovid without speaking to your transplant care team at our Centre first.
  • As per Ontario Health guidance, UHN is no longer offering Evusheld clinics for immunocompromised patients.
  • The monoclonal antibody medication is no longer recommended given that current variants circulating are mostly resistant to Evusheld.

  • NOTE: If you are a Lung Transplant patient who is already using myUHN to message your care team, there will be no change to what you are currently using.
  • Your transplant care team is here to support you if you have any questions. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks! Please visit myUHN Patient Portal and watch the myUHN Patient Portal Tips Playlist for more information on how to sign up and use the service.
