Meanwhile, a Vancouver Island man in his 30’s has become the third person in BC to get VITT (Vaccine – Incudec Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia).

There are now 2,953 active cases and hospitalizations are at the lowest they’ve been since March 9th, with 249 people in hospital, 78 of whom are in ICU.

69.7% of all BC adults 18+ have received at least one dose of a vaccine, and 66.1% of the population 12+ has received at least one dose.

This comes as over 3.2 million doses have been administered across the province.

Dr.Bonnie Henry is reminding anyone that was immunized before April 15th to register for a vaccine appointment, as that is the date the registration system was implemented.

“We do have a record of your vaccination and your PHN but we don’t have any easy way for us to connect with you through text or phone,” explained Henry.
