The provincial government has released updated figures on the COVID-19 vaccination as many eagerly await news on its progress.
As of Sunday evening, over 5,800 doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 2,400 doses of the Moderna vaccine had touched down in this province.
By the end of February, another 11,700 doses of Pfizer’s vaccine are expected to arrive in the Eastern Health region. Both Central and Western Health anticipate just over 5,800 doses in the same timeframe.
Labrador-Grenfell Health, which has yet to receive any of Pfizer’s vaccine, is slated for just fewer than 4,900 doses by the end of next month.
The 2,400 doses of Moderna’s vaccine have been allocated to priority groups within remote and Indigenous communities.
According to the latest numbers, over 2,800 people across Newfoundland have received their first doses of the vaccine. About 850 people in the Eastern Health region have also received their second dose.
