Alberta’s top doctor provides update on COVID-19 | LIVE

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinsaw will provide an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province Thursday.

Thursday’s update comes a day after the province announced it will extend the amount of time between COVID-19 vaccine doses for Albertans.

On Wednesday, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommended first and second doses can be administered up to four months apart if supplies are limited.

Hinshaw said this will allow more Albertans to be effectively vaccinated sooner.

She said the plan is for Alberta to match British Columbia, which announced Monday it will follow the four-month window and get the first dose to everyone who wants one by July.
