B.C. reports fewer than 200 new COVID-19 cases, no deaths

B.C. reports fewer than 200 new COVID-19 cases, no deaths”

Provincial health officer Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix said in a joint statement that 70.4% of all adults in B.C., and 67% of all residents older than 12, have had a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Interior Health death toll remains at 150.

The only active outbreak at a B.C. hospital is at Richmond Hospital in Richmond.

It comes as pharmacies prepare to begin administering COVID-19 vaccines from next week. "Let's keep moving forward", said Dr. Henry.

People can do their part by getting fully immunized with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, they said.

The number of hospitalizations increased slightly on Tuesday to 254, which includes 80 patients in intensive care.

A total of 139,899 people are considered fully recovered from COVID-19, or 97 per cent of all recorded cases.

Long-term care homes have seen some rapid transmission of the virus because not all residents have received a second shot and neither have visitors, so restrictions can not be fully lifted in the facilities where people are in close contact, Henry says.

"Building on the plan for second doses of mRNA vaccines shared last week, this latest guidance will help inform the approach we take here in B.C". "More information will be provided on this later this week", Henry and Dix said.

A man in his 30s who lives in the Island Health region developed the blood clot, known as vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT).

Registration can be done online through the "Get Vaccinated" portal, by calling 1-833-838-2323, or in person at any Service B.C. location.

"Registering with the "Get Vaccinated" immunization system is the fastest way to get both your first or your second dose, and particularly for anyone who was immunized prior to April 15".

She said she was struggling to find the right way to express her horror and grief.
