People aged 30 and over can now receive the Oxford-Astrogeneca Govit-19 vaccine in British Columbia, starting with the outbreaks.
Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr Bonnie Henry said in a statement on Tuesday that the vaccine would be available throughout the province, making it sufficient to add more pharmacological appointments than BC.
The National Advisory Council on Immunization of Canada last week recommended that the vaccine be given to those 30 years of age and older who do not wish to wait for an approved MRNA vaccine, if certain other conditions are met.
Those conditions include a benefit-risk analysis, informed consent and significant delays in obtaining the MRNA vaccine.
The province’s age-based immunization program is now open to 59-year-olds and older, while the one-time program is targeted at workers.
