  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Alberta health officials provide update on second doses of COVID-19 vaccine | LIVE” – below is their description.

    Alberta chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw will update the COVID-19 situation in the province on Tuesday.

    Earlier in the day, Premier Jason Kenney had said that an update on the AstraZeneca vaccine was coming, but his press secretary later said the premier misspoke. According to the premier’s office, an update on the AstraZeneca vaccine will come “later this week.”

    Hinshaw is expected to update the province’s plan for second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

    Alberta is considering delaying the timing of second doses of COVID-19 vaccines even more, one day after B.C. announced it is extending the time between doses to 112 days.

    Currently, the second dose of vaccine is being delayed up to 42 days in Alberta – a decision that was made after issues with vaccine supply earlier this year. Vaccine manufacturers Pfizer and Moderna propose intervals of 21 and 28 days, respectively.
