Interior Health nears million dose milestone
Interior Health (IH) is nearing its millionth dose of COVID-19 vaccine being administered throughout the Interior region as the #journey2immunity campaign continues.
“Our COVID-19 immunization campaign is nearing the incredible milestone of one million doses,” said Interior Health president and CEO Susan Brown. “I want to thank the teams throughout IH for their incredible efforts at deploying this vaccine throughout the region and I especially want to thank everyone who have protected themselves from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated.”
In total, 969,810 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered throughout Interior Health to date. This includes over 557,598 first doses and 412,212 second doses.
“For anyone who has not had the chance to get immunized, it’s not too late.” added Brown. “Whether you schedule an appointment or simply drop-in to any of our immunization clinics, we are continuing to make the vaccine available across the Interior. As the wildfire season intensifies, get immunized sooner rather than later, and protect yourself and your loved ones from illness.”
The Interior’s vaccine rollout is a coordinated effort between Interior Health and the First Nations Health Authority.
