From April 25 to May 1, BCCDC recorded 160 cases of COVID-19 on the North Shore, and 261 people had tested positive the week before.
BC has now administered 2,623,907 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines, and 135,246 of these are second doses.
“Getting everyone in our province immunized is our pathway forward through the COVID-19 pandemic. This will ensure we have enough protection and community immunity to allow us to slowly lift public health and travel restrictions,” BC said today.
Today, young people 12 to 17 years old may register to receive their vaccine. More details will be provided tomorrow.
