B.C. premier, officials to update province’s immunization plan

B.C. remains in the first phase, while Phase 4 — planned for July to September — will immunize members of the general public between the ages of 18 and 59.

A slowdown of vaccine delivery to the province through February complicated B.C.’s plan. To date, 252,373 doses have been administered. 

It’s expected that this month, seniors 80 and older, Indigenous seniors 65 and older, hospital staff and medical specialists, vulnerable populations living and working in congregated settings and staff providing in-home support to seniors will begin getting their shots.

Immunization clinics overseen by local health authorities are being organized in 172 communities in school gymnasiums, arenas, convention centres and community halls.

The province says it is developing a system to alert people to register for a vaccination clinic and ensure they receive a formal record of immunization once they are immunized.
