COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
“More than half a million doses of vaccine have now been administered in Alberta. Nearly one in 10 Albertans have received at least one dose to protect them against COVID-19.
“Alberta’s vaccine rollout keeps getting bigger and better. More than 146,400 doses were administered during the last week, including more than 27,600 reported on March 21 alone.
“Despite setbacks from the federal government, we are getting vaccines in the arms of Albertans as quickly and safely as possible. We are more than doubling the number of pharmacies offering vaccinations, with hundreds more participating, along with community physicians, in the coming weeks.
“We are all tired of the ‘new normal.’ Fortunately, with every single vaccine administered we are getting closer and closer to returning to normal. If supply keeps up, every adult Albertan will be offered a vaccination by the end of June.
“Alberta’s vaccine rollout is one of the best in the country, with among the highest percentage of doses administered. We are moving as quickly as we can, based on limited vaccine supply.
“When it’s your turn, please sign up for your shot, show up for your appointment, and follow up with your second dose. Vaccines save lives, protect our health system and help us safely ease restrictions as soon as possible.”
