Chief Medical Officer of Health – Dr Jennifer Russell – says a move is underway to accelerate the rollout of vaccination clinics to long term care homes – including those experiencing outbreaks.

The province has received another 2700-doses of the Moderna vaccine and 3900 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

COVID vaccinations will begin today at 8-long term care facilities in the Saint John area including the Shannex complex in Millidgeville. The complex is in the midst of an outbreak of COVID and residents of the unit hardest hit will not be vaccinated at this time. In addition – clinics will be held this weekend for front line health care workers in the region.
