    B.C. health officials are scheduled to provide a COVID-19 update on Monday afternoon. Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry will speak at a 3 p.m. PT press conference.

    The update comes after the opening of British Columbia’s call centre to book COVID-19 vaccination appointments.

    Dix said the appointment booking line received 1.7 million calls as of 9:40 a.m. Monday despite the fact that only about 82,000 people — those born in 1931 or earlier and Indigenous people born in 1946 and earlier — are eligible to receive an appointment at this time.

    Many of those same people have already received a vaccination in long-term care.
