COVID-19 Update – March 4, 2021

March 4, 2021

Immunization Program

We are pleased to announce that a successful immunization clinic, offered by Fraser Health, for independant living tenants of North and Vidal Court was held on March 2nd.  98 tenants received their first dose of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.  In total 75% of independant living tenants received their first vaccine dose.

This week we learned that the interval between the 1st and  2nd dose vaccine has been extended to 16 weeks by the Provincial Health Officer.  An update will be provided once we know when second dose clinics are planned for.  Information on BC’s Immunization Plan can be found at www.gov.bc.ca.

Getting immunized with the 1st dose is another layer of protection along with continued adherence to  all Public Health Officer orders and guidelines (e.g. physical distancing, wearing a mask, frequent handwashing, avoid social gatherings).  Everyone, including those who have received their vaccine,  must continue to be extra vigilant and to continue following the public health measures to prevent the spread of this very contagious virus and to abide by the Province-wide restrictions.
