The following is a message from KFL&A Public Health regarding the COVID-19 vaccine roll out:
Today marks a significant milestone in our local vaccine roll out. With the tremendous support of multiple stakeholders and partners working together to administer vaccines, KFL&A Public Health is pleased and grateful to share that over a quarter of a million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the region. In total, 77.8 per cent of individuals 12 years of age and older have received their first dose and 44.5 per cent of these individuals are fully vaccinated.
“We are especially pleased to report that almost half of those eligible for vaccination in our area are fully vaccinated,” said Dr. Hugh Guan, Associate Medical Officer of Health at KFL&A Public Health. “We want to invite any area residents who have not yet received their first vaccine dose to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
