Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Alberta chief medical officer of health provides update on COVID-19 | LIVE” – below is their description.
Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw will update the province on the COVID-19 response for the first time since Dec. 28, 2020.
The update comes after a tumultuous week in the province that saw the government criticized for various members travelling over the holidays, and over the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Alberta’s health minister and chief medical officer of health say there is “misinformation” circulating online about COVID-19 vaccine going to waste in the province.
Tyler Shandro and Hinshaw issued a joint statement Tuesday morning to “definitively address this inaccurate information.”
In the statement, the health officials said in all large-scale immunization programs, some wastage will occur and a “minimal amount of vaccine will be lost when drawing doses or if a vial is dropped or spilled.
“While this is upsetting, it is unavoidable. It is also extremely limited thanks to the processes in place,” the statement reads.
