B.C. is extending its vaccine card program until June 30, provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry said Tuesday.
This program applies to everyone over the age of 12, she said but it might be ended prior to June 30 if hospitalizations and cases decrease.
However, hospital numbers remain high at this time, Henry added, and that is putting a “significant strain on the health-care system.”
Almost 1,000 people are in hospital in B.C. due to COVID as the Omicron variant continues to surge.
