Global News published this video item, entitled “More than 2M doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered in Alberta | FULL” – below is their description.
Alberta has hit yet another milestone in its COVID-19 vaccine rollout, surpassing two million doses administered. It comes as Alberta recorded 1,558 new cases of COVID-19 Thursday.
So far, Alberta has administered 2,019,713 doses of COVID-19 vaccine and 322,247 Albertans are fully immunized with two doses.
That translates to about 38 per cent of the population having received one dose of the vaccine and 7.2 per cent of Albertans fully immunized.
Alberta chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw said more than 328,000 shots are expected to go into the arms of Albertans in the next seven days.
Hinshaw announced Thursday that Alberta was updating its mandatory mask mandate when it comes to exemptions.
Effective immediately, Albertans with conditions that cannot wear a mask will require a exception letter from a medical professional.
Hinshaw said the province was modelling this mandate after those already in place in Saskatchewan and Quebec.
