Coronavirus: Seniors living independently feel ‘forgotten’ as others prioritized for vaccines

Seniors across the country are wondering when their turn will come to get vaccinated against COVID-19. In November, Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) provided recommendations for provinces and territories for their rollout plans. However, with ultimate discretion left to the provinces, the timelines are different in every region.

In the recommendations, NACI said that “adults 70 years of age and older, beginning with adults 80 years of age and older,” should be included in the first phase of the vaccination rollout.

However, not everyone listened to this advice. Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec all left older Canadians out of the very first phases of their vaccination plans.

As Mike LeCouteur explains, seniors advocates say that older adults should be prioritized, regardless of where they live.
