VICTORIA - British Columbia health officials say they’ve added a senior official to the province’s immunization response team to help with the program as it gets more complex.
Dr. Penny Ballem will be the executive lead and work with the health minister and other officials to ensure the province is ready for community immunization when the vaccine supply is more readily available in April.
So far, 63,430 people have received a COVID-19 vaccine in B.C. and officials say work is underway to align the available supply with a person’s level of risk.
