148 new cases of #COVID19 announced in B.C., as the province sees its rolling average go below 170 for the first time since October 21 and active cases below 2000 since October 22.

Hospitalizations down 195, and three new deaths.

Today's chart.
The predictable chart continues to be predictable, even if the decline is a lot less exciting now
Second dose season is here: a RECORD HIGH 44,756 of them were delivered in B.C. yesterday.

Number of first doses remains below 20,000 for another day, as B.C. inches towards 80% of all adults with at least one dose (it's currently at 74.5%).
Hospitalizations now at 195, lowest since November 17, active cases in ICU at 47, lowest since November 12.

All expected progress at this point, still a huge relief to see.
According to the BC Centre for Disease Control, there were zero #COVID19 deaths in a long-term care home from May 22-29.

It's just the second time in the entire pandemic that's happened.

153 new cases of #COVID19 announced in B.C., as the rolling average goes down for the 51st time in 53 days.

Big dip in hospitalizations, down to 176, lowest since November 14.

Four new deaths.

Today's chart. Image
73,345 people in B.C. were given a vaccine shot yesterday, including a RECORD HIGH 53,298 second doses.

Now up to 74.9% of adults in B.C. with one dose, as the drive to 80% still seems reasonable. ImageImage
The government is going over a bunch of data right now — most of which we've discussed on this cursed website recently.

To me, this is the most interesting new piece of information: modelling that shows B.C. expecting the decrease in cases to stop over the next month. Image

72% of Salt Spring Island adults have gotten a first vaccine dose

but for Pender/Galiano/Saturna/Mayne combined, it's 88%

at the risk of stirring the gulf island microcultures hornet's nest that strikes me as interesting
Local Health Areas in B.C. with the lowest first dose vaccination rates for adults at this point:

- Peace River North 47%
- Peace River South 49%
- Fort Nelson 51%
- Enderby 57%
- Creston 59%
- Kettle Valley/Nechako/Quesnel/Lumby 60%
We're now at the point where mass clinics in all parts of B.C. have been open for months, and everyone who registered when they were asked to *should* have gotten a first dose by now.

So we can start making some inferences on vaccine hesitancy that may have been unfair before.

165 new cases of #COVID19 announced in B.C., as the province's rolling average and active case load continues to decline, though now at a slower pace than the last seven weeks.

No new deaths for just the second time in a month.

Today's chart. Image
Just 18,283 people in B.C. were given a first vaccine dose yesterday, the lowest number since the April long weekend.

As we've been talking about, the full slowdown has begun.

31,262 second doses, a record high, and we'll have more record high days to come. ImageImage
The predictable chart continues ... actually, it's slowing down now.

We're entering a new phase of this pandemic, and how many people it impacts will depend on a fair bit on far down these lines keep going, and how many more people get vaccinated. Image

Today's chart.
has dr. henry always gone "thing x reminds us of collective action y" or i am just more attuned to it today
An average of 48,355 people were given a vaccine shot in B.C. over the last three days — a 24% increase over the previous weekend.

Approaching the halfway point for all people in the entire province having at least one dose.

B.C. folks under 30: if you registered for your vaccine but haven't gotten a text/email asking you to book by the time you wake up tomorrow morning, there's no harm calling and checking that they have all the right information
I didn't get a text because it turned out there was an issue with how my information was inputted in their system, and I've heard that with other folks too.

But I've heard good things about calling in and getting it quickly sorted out, and experienced it too.
(note: if you do this tactic, it seems sometimes you can book immediately on the phone, and sometimes you're still told to wait for the text/email — but at the very least it should help quell your I JUST WANT TO BOOK anxiety)
