We checked in again with Provincial Health in BC for an update on our request for advance vaccinations for personal service workers.
We heard back today with this reply:
Thank you for your email regarding vaccinations for the personal services sector, and particularly those working in care homes.
Dr. Henry has noted the front-line priority worker vaccination stream is on pause while we are waiting on Health Canada’s recommendations to determine what adjustments may need to be made to this immunization stream as a result of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD safety signal for those under 55.
We will relay your input and carry forward your question for the next COVID-19 Industry Engagement Table meeting.
B.C. COVID-19 Industry Engagement Table
We will provide another update if we hear any further news as it develops. The Secretariat suggested this resource for anyone in the industry for ongoing information around B.C.’s COVID-19 Immunization Plan.
