Major Delivery of COVID Vaccines

Another major delivery of COVID vaccines arrived in the province to help meet demand for boosters.

As of yesterday, some 24,000 people had received their booster shot, but many more are still waiting.

Health Minister John Haggie admits the province has had some difficulty securing its share of the federal supply, but that’s since been resolved and some 107,000 doses arrived in the province yesterday.

He says the delay has been caused by global supply issues involving the adult doses.
