The latest round of COVID-19 vaccines are now available in B.C., but some residents say they are running into trouble as they try to book a shot.
On Oct. 4, invitations started going out by text and email inviting British Columbians to book their next vaccination.
Health Minister Adrian Dix said Wednesday that since the latest round of vaccines began, more than two million invitations have gone out, and more than 500,000 people have been vaccinated against both COVID-19 and the flu.
“People are going to get vaccinated and I’m very, very supportive and appreciative of that,” Dix said. “What a good decision for them, their families and their communities.”
But some residents have reported confusion to CBC News around how and when they can get an appointment, as some run into trouble securing one.
It’s been a while since the last vaccine, so CBC spoke with the Health Ministry about how this latest dose will roll out.
