Were you offered a Booster within six months?

Post by Silverstarqueen »

Adrian Dix claims most people got their booster within six months of their last dose, that b.c. is "ahead of the curve". over 450,000 doses given etc. At their current rate of operation I will not be able to get a booster by six months. So how many are getting them, or is Dix just whistling in the wind?

Adrian Dix says his ministry announced weeks ago that it would start its booster program and already 470,000 people have had a third shot.
He [Adrian] says those living and working in all long-term care and seniors’ facilities have had a booster and almost half of those 70 and over have received a third shot.

Dix says most of those who have had their third shot have done so within the six-month time limit suggested by the national committee.

Got mine a week ago.
My second shot was last June.
The clinic had been going on for awhile and was busy. Some were there for their third, a young couple behind me were getting their first.

Most of those I know received their second dose in early July, I will see if they get a call in early January.

1st shot on May 11th, 2nd on June 23rd and booster scheduled for Dec 22nd. Clinic here only has Monday and Wednesday appointments and first available was the one I booked. Could get it sooner if I wanted to schlep into Kelowna instead of the clinic 3 miles from home.

Oh I know. If I don't want to do something, I don't.

No it's at the Capri near where Winners used to be.

There is also no close by handicapped parking for those who need it. So if anyone needs that it would be helpful to have someone drive you so you can unload and get picked up at the door.
