Covid-19 Updates – September 9th, 2022

Basic Safety Measures – The Golden Rules

  1. Stay Home if you are sick.
    2. Wear a mask if you are in crowded public places.
    3. Get vaccinated, Get your Booster.
    4. Meet with friends outside so there is more fresh airflow and less chance of infection.

Fall Booster Information

Health Minister Adrian Dix and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry had a press conference on Tuesday, September 6th to provide information about the Fall Booster Program in BC.  Here is some information from the website, but for more information, go to this address:

Fall booster doses

Health Canada has approved the bivalent Moderna booster for people 18 and older. Bivalent vaccines provide better protection against the original strain and Omicron variants of COVID-19.

When supply arrives in B.C, it will be distributed to the public starting with the people most at risk from COVID-19.

B.C. is offering everyone 5 and older a fall booster dose. Public health knows this approach will provide the best protection in the fall and winter when we’re all spending more time inside and respiratory illness is passed around our communities.

You will receive a personalized booking invitation when it’s time to book your dose.

Understand your vaccine options

You will receive either the Moderna or Pfizer (mRNA) vaccine.

It doesn’t matter what vaccine you received for your initial vaccination series.

mRNA vaccines are the best choice for a booster dose because they provide the most effective protection against COVID-19.

If you’re 18 or older and would prefer a non-mRNA vaccine, you can get the Novavax vaccine or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

If you need help

Phone the call centre if you need help booking an appointment. Phone agents can’t answer questions about the best timing for your next dose.

Call: 1-833-838-2323      Seven days a week, 7 am to 7 pm. Translators are available.

Spectrum Covid Supplies

Please call the office or drop by to pick up:

  • Rapid Antigen Test Kits – 5 tests to a box
  • KN-95 Masks – 20 to a box
  • Medical Masks –  50 to a box
