Regarding vaccines, 2,979,951 doses were administered, of which 152,010 were second doses.
British Columbia unveiled its restart plan, which includes the possibility of larger gatherings and province-wide travel starting June 15. If all goes according to plan, BC would essentially be fully reopened by September.
This plan depends on the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations that decrease and remain low, as well as the vaccination of British Columbians.
“Since immunization is the foundation of our approach, it is critical to our success that we are all registered and vaccinated,” read a joint statement from Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, and the Minister. of Health, Adrian Dix.
