BC nears 300000 COVID-19 vaccinations, essential workers next – Maple Ridge News – Maple Ridge News

Published

 on


B.C. public health officials are expecting their first shipments of AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 next week, and are preparing to administer it to first responders and other essential workers.

Details of when people in the large group of essential workers will receive their first dose are expected by the third week of March, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said. The new vaccination program is to run in parallel with the age-based vaccination of seniors using Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, starting with those aged 90 and up next week.

Henry reported the latest coronavirus case numbers, with 564 new cases and four additional deaths associated with COVID-19 in the 24 hours up to March 4. There were no new outbreaks in communities or the health care system, with seven outbreak protocols currently in effect at long-term care and assisted living facilities. There have been cases found in three independent living senior homes, but a low number of positive tests has been found, Henry said.

Overall vaccination in B.C. is nearing 300,000, and public health officials expect the rate to accelerate with Pfizer and Moderna vaccine deliveries resuming and the permissible interval between the first shot and the booster shot extended to four months.

Henry apologized to people in long-term care whose second-dose appointments were cancelled, as public health officials updated their vaccination plan last weekend based on new research on the effectiveness of first doses over time.

“I regret that our communications weren’t able to keep up as fast as the decision-making,” Henry said, reminding people that any dose they didn’t get has gone to someone else in the community to increase protection for everyone.

New emergency order lets Shared Health investigate if Manitoba health-care workers cut line for vaccine – CBC.ca

Published

 on


The Manitoba government is taking action to see if people have cut in line to receive a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine earlier than they should have.

A new order under the Emergency Measures Act — which came into effect Wednesday — will allow Shared Health to investigate the eligibility of health-care workers who have been vaccinated, says a news release issued by the provincial government Friday.

“The emergency order announced this week establishes an audit process to determine if there may have been a notable volume of ineligible vaccinations,” a Manitoba government spokesperson told CBC News in a statement.

“Should this audit find such evidence, the order also establishes a process to take further action if warranted.”

The new order, which is in effect until April 15, applies to any vaccination applications made since Dec. 12, 2020.

Per the order, Shared Health can review information in a person’s vaccination application against other information it has in its possession, to make sure the information is accurate and that the person was eligible for vaccination.

Shared Health can disclose information to a regional health authority or department, so that agency can verify information. The agency receiving information must review the application versus other information in its possession, the order says.

If the agency finds that an individual was ineligible for vaccination, it must send all information it has about the person to Shared Health, the order says.

If Shared Health cannot determine whether someone jumped the queue, it can approach an employer, “other person or entity identified in a person’s vaccination application” to ask questions. The person or agency must share all of its information about the individual in question, upon request by Shared Health.

If the investigation confirms that someone gave false information in order to be vaccinated early, then that will be disclosed to the person’s employer, professional regulatory body, or a police service, the order says.

The auditing process to track potential queue-jumpers is still new, so the spokesperson said “it would be premature to speculate on its findings” thus far.

VICTORIA —
Health officials have confirmed 26 more cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Island region Friday.

The cases were among 634 found across the province over the last 24 hours, health officials said in their final COVID-19 update of the week.

There are now 305 active cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Island region, including 17 people in hospital and two in critical care.

Island Health has identified the locations of 256 of the active cases. There are 139 in the Central Island, 62 in the North Island and 55 in the South Island.

Four more people have died of the virus in B.C., bringing the province’s death toll to 1,380. No deaths were reported in the Island Health region, where the death toll has reached 27.

“We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost loved ones to COVID-19,” said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix in a joint statement.

The Island Health region has now confirmed 2,515 cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

B.C. identified four new COVID-19 variant cases Friday. The province has now confirmed 250 variant cases, 12 of which are currently active.

Meanwhile, health-care teams have administered 12,357 more vaccine doses over the past 24 hours, for a total of 311,208 doses, including 86,865 second doses.

Health officials say the province’s vaccine rollout plan is gaining momentum, and remind British Columbians aged 90 and over that they can begin booking vaccine appointments on Monday.

Indigenous people over the age of 65 can also arrange for a vaccine appointment starting March. 8.

“In addition to our immunization program, we are regularly reviewing the public health restrictions to assess when we can safely ease them,” said Henry and Dix.

“We know many are keen to resume activities and we will open what we can when we have the confidence it is safe to do so.”
