What is the most current plan to provide vaccine to front line worker groups, such as Childcare/Daycare staff, Firefighters, and other public safety officials etc?

Within Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health, right now we’re moving on to vaccinating teachers, people working in daycares and first responders. If you are working in such an organization and have not heard yet, then expect to be contacted soon. There is a detailed process to reach licensed child cares, schools and we have been in touch with our partners; police, fire, emergency and medical services. This varies across the region as our colleagues in Island Health haven’t had workplace transmissions that we’re dealing with in VCH/FH, they are focusing on age as the biggest risk factor. Each region is a bit different. Each region has different risks and different approaches to get vaccines out. IF you are in VCH/FH – those sectors are getting a lot of attention right now with quite a bit number of people getting vaccinated each day.
