John Horgan has joined the list of more than one million British Columbians who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.

The premier of British Columbia was hit by AstraZeneca at a pharmacy in Victoria on Friday. British Columbians aged 55 and over can get the vaccine at a pharmacy.

“I want all British Columbians to know that to date 27% of British Columbians have been vaccinated. The AstraZeneca product is safe. I just applied it to myself. My wife should have hers next week, ”Horgan said.

“I want to say to all British Columbians, when you get the call, get the chance to get vaccinated.”

The public is increasingly concerned about the AstraZeneca vaccine as the National Advisory Committee on Immunization adjusts the ages of people who can be vaccinated.

Under the leadership of the committee, the province has phased out the use of AstraZeneca for priority workers, focusing instead on the 55 and over group of the general population.

The move came after the vaccine was linked to blood clotting in Europe, and earlier this week Canada reported its first case of vaccine-induced blood clots linked to AstraZeneca in a Quebec woman who was reportedly recovering from the House.

AstraZeneca vaccine remains safe despite “stronger link” to blood clots, says Health Canada

A recent Angus Reid online poll suggests that 41 percent of Canadians would be comfortable receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

British Columbia health officials have constantly told people to take the first vaccine they have and that AstraZeneca is safe – that the problem with blood clotting has only been detected once in Canada after that hundreds of thousands of doses have been administered.

“Cut down on your contacts and stay as far away from people as possible and enjoy the good weather,” Horgan said.
