Northern Health was honoured by Dr. Bonnie Henry's visit to Prince George on June 22, and grateful for her support for NH staff and physicians who have worked so hard in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
December 21, 2021 marked one year since the COVID-19 vaccine first arrived in the Northern Health region. Since then, we’ve reached vaccine milestones in all our communities and provided many unique vaccine clinic opportunities. As well, we’ve seen countless hours of hard work by our staff, physicians, volunteers, stakeholders, and community members. Below are some of our milestones throughout the year!
The list below shows COVID-19 immunizations in the Northern Health region as of December 10, 2021:
1st dose: 43,275
2nd dose: 38,549
Booster/3rd dose: 4,641
1st dose: 112,589
2nd dose: 104,287
Booster/3rd dose: 16,958
1st dose: 60,242
2nd dose: 55,279
Booster/3rd dose: 11,241
These numbers bring us to a total 447,061 COVID-19 vaccine doses given in Northern Health – almost half a million!
These successes are due to the tireless efforts of Northern Health staff and vaccine planning teams, the First Nations Health Authority, our community partners and stakeholders, and Northern BC residents who recognize the importance of protecting themselves, their families and their communities, so that we can get through this pandemic.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve these (and many more) milestones!
