SURREY – As part of the Province’s strategy to provide vaccine to people in high-transmission neighbourhoods, Fraser Health is now immunizing people ages 30 and over (born in 1991 or earlier) in nine additional neighbourhoods in our region where we are seeing high rates of COVID-19 transmission, to protect these individuals and their loved ones.
“Today, we are reporting 862 new cases, for a total of 121,751 cases in British Columbia.
“There are 8,906 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, with 13,135 people under public health monitoring as a result of identified exposure to known cases. A further 111,039 people who tested positive have recovered.
“Of the active cases, 483 individuals are currently hospitalized with COVID-19, 163 of whom are in intensive care. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation.
