76.5% of all adults have had at least one shot of a COVID vaccine. 74.8% of 12 plus have at least one dose. 4,231,871 doses in total. 768,008 are second doses.

The supply of Pfizer coming to BC in early July will be reduced. Dr. Bonnie Henry says things like this happen. "We will work with what we get."

A lot of Moderna is coming, so this will offset the Pfizer shortages. Normally you will be offered same mRna for second. But there are some cases where you may be offered the other vaccine.

17.8% of the adult population is fully immunized in BC.
