I thought they had a higher rate of vaccination but may have mixed it up with another south american country being slammed by the P1 variant. From what I understand it is more likely to reinfect vaccinated individuals than the other strains.

Chile has vaccinated 40% of their adults, but it is with the dubious-at-best Chinese vaccine that has not yet published full phase 3 data.

Not sure when NACI meets again but we need to get AZ going again in this country.

The UK is allowing it for 30+, but which is probably the safest answer.

Young women are disproportionately impacted. But women under 30 are in a different category than women 30-50.

If you fancy lowering your faith in Canadians, read the comments on that CBC article .

Chile is using Sinovac, I believe, while Brazil is using a different Chinese vaccine, CoronaVac (in addition to Astra-Zeneca).

And men under 65? That's more than enough eligibility.

I applied for the 55+ vaccine on the weekend but had an email from Shoppers Drug Mart today saying that they don't have enough to meet demand, so it will be awhile.

CBC needs to just nuke the comments section and be done with it. It's basically just become an echo chamber for sociopathic wingnuts who wake up every morning thinking about Trudeau, and most sensible people know there's literally no point in trying to engage with them.

That's good in a way - I worry about running out of people to give AZ stock to if we don't change the age restriction.

Grade 7-12 students in Calgary are moving to online only for two weeks starting Monday due to rise in cases and lack of substitute teachers. My husband works as a sub for Rockyview Schools and he received 26 calls for today. Some schools are short up to 9 teachers and only able to book a single sub.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calga...987965?cmp=rss

I wonder if other school boards will follow suit?

I went for a walk in my neighbourhood at lunchtime today and happened to walk past a mass vaccination site. I saw a guy coming out who I presume had just received the jab; I could see people inside receiving the jab, and there were people outside at the entrance waiting to be let in.

It brightened my day to see these vaccinations happening in real-time, and seeing a newly vaccinated man entering into the community.

To give Fraser Health credit, they picked a good location - right next to a SkyTrain station.

Must be Anvil Centre. That and Langley Events center are Fraser Health's larger sites I believe. VCH is using River Rock Casino and the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Lots of locations, you can google the lists. Big spaces make more sense though, they are still requiring people to hang around for 15 mins to monitor for adverse reactions.

Yep, Anvil Centre. I believe an abandoned Best Buy in Surrey is also being used. (Hopefully any old Microsoft signage has been removed, for reasons.)

VCH is also using the Italian Cultural Centre. Also across the street from skytrain and lots of parking.

Canada would significantly benefit from an army of Dessuups (professional community volunteers); they're very much "what can I do for my country" type people.

Has any other country has as bad a third wave as Canada is having, relative to the previous waves?

Israel's third wave was pretty bad compared to the first two, though their fourth wave was by far the worst, infecting the most people and lasting the longest, nearly 3 months. Our third wave could be worse than their fourth though.
