"Vaccination is vital to countering the continued spread of COVID-19", said Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health.

"While I'm grateful to see the enthusiasm that we have, we ask everyone who is outside the age group for this week to please be patient and wait your turn", Henry said.

"And we can quadruple the level of doses we are doing each day in very short order but what we need are the large doses of the vaccine to come in", she said.

Uganda plans to start its first phase of vaccinations on March 10 after receiving the first batch of 864,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine from the Covid-19 Vaccine Global Access (Covax) facility.

The state's long-awaited state vaccine website was also up and running on Monday.

Starting on that day, all Ohioans aged 50 and older and those with Type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease can begin to get their Covid shots. "If everybody 50 and above were vaccinated, you'd knock out 98 percent of the deaths, so making that available as quickly as we can was very, very important".

The CDC also says that small groups of vaccinated people can safely gather indoors with unvaccinated people - as long as those unvaccinated people do not have pre-existing conditions that would put them at elevated risk for the virus.

"The Ohio Department of Health is scheduling appointments through our central scheduling tool", he said. "We encourage more and more providers to get on, just as quickly as they can".

Health officials have now administered 333,327 doses of COVID-19 in B.C., including 86,925 secondary doses.

The announcement comes as the Holness administration is under pressure to commence vaccination against the disease that has caused the public-health system to creak under record hospitalisations and infections in February.

Over 80 per cent of long-term care residents are now fully immunized and public health units are working with homes to vaccinate staff and essential caregivers as a priority.
