Ajmera Transplant Centre's guidance regarding the Omicron variant:

  • Guidance has been updated to allow transplant patients to receive a booster shot (3rd or 4th dose) 3 months after their last dose.
  • 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 omicron variant is spreading rapidly in Ontario and worldwide. As with previous variants of COVID-19, Omicron can present with increased severity in transplant recipients.
  • Transplant patients should continue to take precautions to prevent exposure to COVID. Wear a mask when going out, gather only in small groups and with fully vaccinated people.
  • We currently advise against travel, when possible.
  • All patients should have received three doses of vaccine as their primary series. If you have not received a third dose, you should receive it immediately.
  • More information will follow as it becomes available, as the situation is evolving rapidly.

For information about safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and other resources, please visit the Canadian Society for Transplantation COVID-19 Resources page.

The Ajmera Transplant Centre is cautiously monitoring the centre's transplant activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ongoing measures are being taken to ensure that donated organs are COVID-free and that the transplant units remain low COVID-19 risk areas. Please visit UHN's COVID-19 section for information before coming to the hospital.

As we shared before, you will continue to keep your priority on the waiting list during the pandemic.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your Transplant Coordinator for information and support, and visit the Transplant Psychosocial Team page for more resources.​​
