“Over the next few weeks, as part of our scale-up, more vaccination sites will come online including in rural areas, to provide vaccination service to those who have registered,” Winde said.
He encouraged all residents who are eligible under the second phase to register as soon as possible.
“We will also use this important moment to encourage residents across our province who are 60 years old or older to register for their vaccine. If you are not yet eligible, we encourage you to help someone to register who is. We are all in this together,” he said.
