To the families, care providers, and communities across British Columbia: we know that this has been a most challenging time.

Henry said the vaccine approach B.C.is taking is based on the supply that is available. Of those, the county considers 4,687 people to be recovered or recovering, while 322 have been hospitalized at some point during their illness (including 18 in the past week), and 58 have died.

Arizona has one of the worst diagnosis rates in the U.S. Health officials reported almost 9,000 new COVID-19 cases and six more deaths. More than half of those have occurred since the beginning of December, as COVID-19 spread through dozens of care homes across the province.

Four other outbreaks ended, leaving 60 ongoing throughout the health-care system.

One of the fatalities was within Island Health, where 13 people have died.

Daily COVID-19 numbers have been lower on Mondays throughout the pandemic, reflecting reduced testing and reporting on the weekends. The number of patients in intensive care or critical care decreased slightly to 72, down from 75 on Friday.

"The amount of vaccine received in Jackson County has not allowed us to provide a vaccine yet for all who want it in those groups", Rashmi Travis, Jackson County Health Department health officer, said.

According to Henry, a second vaccine dose most be administered within 19 to 42 days after a person receives their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Henry said the trials showed no difference between immune response among people who got a second dose 19 days later, versus days later - while the primary risk lies not in getting the second dose too late, but too soon.

Once a second dose is administered, the Pfizer vaccine improves to 94.4 per cent effective while the Moderna vaccine rises to 95.2 per cent effective for a longer period of time.

"We are excited to be giving vaccine to the community, but are asking for partnership and patience while we work through priority groups as outlined by MDHHS and the Center for Disease Control", said Courtland Keteyian, Henry Ford Allegiance Health vice president of population health.

She noted waiting in between doses gives the body time to build up that immunity.
