Coronavirus: BC prioritizing age and vulnerable people in mass COVID-19 immunization plan | FULL

The B.C. government will not be giving special priority to the COVID-19 vaccine to a wide range of front-line workers including police officers, teachers, truck drivers and grocery store clerks.

Instead, the province is focusing the mass immunization plan on age. The only exception will be those with clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.

The largest immunization in the province’s history includes 4.3 million eligible people and is expected to immunize everyone who is eligible before the end of September.

The province continues to vaccinate front line health care workers, long term care staff and long term residences as part of the current vaccination rollout.

The plan is based on the use of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine and does not account for vaccines that have not yet been approved in Canada. The vaccine is not yet available for those 18 years old and younger because the available vaccines have not been tested on children.
