Priority immunization for people in high-risk neighbourhoods is one part of its strategy to manage COVID-19 transmission in its region. It is continuing with immunizing priority groups and locations where it’s seeing outbreaks and clusters.

Fraser Health said: “While it remains critical that we continue following public health orders and guidance, registering for the COVID-19 vaccine helps put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us, and brings us one step closer to reconnecting with the people we care about the most and returning to the activities we enjoy, while protecting our health system and helping businesses in our community return to normal operations.
“All vaccines that are approved in Canada and available in British Columbia are safe and effective, and will help protect you against COVID-19. Vaccines have been shown to have a high level of protection against serious illness and death, and every vaccine that is administered makes us, our loved ones, and our communities all safer.”
