P1/vax. signals of concern in lab settings that vax doesn't neturalize p1 as well - but there will be some level of protection. Also was a reinfection meaning it *might* be able to evade immune response. canada may be able to provide more data. 3/

Health Minister @adriandix says allocations to pharmacies that are giving these shots are according to what they did for the flu program.
He's heard ppl concerned some pharmacies gave preferential treatment but doesn't believe that happened.
#bcpoli @NEWS1130 #covid19
The only thing preventing more vaccinations happening @adriandix says is the amount of vaccine there is available.
As for the bumps in this rollout he says when NACI said AZ should pause under 55 they moved fast to get the doses in arms. 3/...

NEW: BC #covid19 vaccine rollout
- front line/essential workers may move up in priority line
with Astra Zeneca suggested for ppl under 65
- 2nd doses now at 4 months not 42 days (frees up 75000 shots now)
- remains age based overall 90+ in community March 15
#bcpoli @NEWS1130
To ease pressure / bottlenecks other regions have seen, #covid19 vaccine booking will be done a week ahead of age group eligibility and prioritizing phone booking for those older and pushing younger to book online
#bcpoli @NEWS1130
With Astra Zeneca - looking at how those can best be used/targetted to front line workers. [fire, corrections, police, essential workers who can not work from home (food processing, mail distribution, manufacturing, poultry processing, agricultural wokers)]
