Alberta health officials are expected to hold a COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday.
The update comes after the province expanded access to fourth doses of COVID-19 vaccines last week.
Those who are 70 and older, as well as First Nations, Métis and Inuit people 65 and older can get their second booster shot.
All seniors in congregate care, regardless of age, can also receive the dose.
Those eligible can book their fourth dose if five months have passed since their third.
The province reported 5,549 new cases of COVID-19 from 21,314 tests last Wednesday, along with an additional 30 deaths. This brought the provincial death toll to 4,104 since the pandemic began.
There were 990 people in hospital with COVID-19 as of last Wednesday, with 44 receiving care in the ICU.
