Will COVID-19 vaccine program for front-line priority worker vaccination program be restarted now that AstraZeneca’s age eligibility has been expanded?

Not at this time, but potentially in future. Some workplaces are continuing to receive priority vaccination based on overall risk assessments in the health regions, but the remainder of the current AstraZeneca supply has been diverted to high-risk neighborhoods and pharmacies.

Pharmacies with supply in other communities are also continuing to offer COVID-19 immunizations, so encouraging employees aged 40+ in high-risk neighborhoods to register (https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/vaccine/neighbourhood), and those outside those neighborhoods to make appointments at a participating pharmacy may be the quickest route to getting your team members immunized.
