COVID-19: BC targeting nearly 1 million eligible people who have not yet received vaccine | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: BC targeting nearly 1 million eligible people who have not yet received vaccine | FULL” – below is their description.

B.C. health officials say they are ramping up efforts over the next two weeks to vaccinate as many people as possible.

The increased effort includes walk-in Wednesday on Aug. 4 across the province with 20,000 shots available and no need to book ahead.

The province is also slightly reducing the interval between first and second doses, from eight weeks to seven weeks. British Columbians now must wait at least 49 days between COVID-19 shots.

Following the two-week blitz and with lower demand for shots, BC will shift the balance to fewer large mass clinics and greater use of public health clinics, outreach clinics, mobiles, and pop-ups.
