Alberta Premier Kenney lays out phase two of province’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan | FULL

Alberta is moving forward with its COVID-19 vaccine distribution with plans to finish Phase 1 starting next week and Phase 2 to start in April.

All seniors born in 1946 or earlier are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine within the next week.

Those living in retirement centres, senior lodges and all other congregate or supportive living homes will be eligible starting Friday.

Starting on Feb. 24, seniors born in or before 1946 and still living in the community will be able to book an appointment to receive the vaccine.

Booking will be done online or over the phone.

Kenney and Shandro also outlined who will be the next group of Albertans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Phase 2 will be broken down into four groups.

Phase 2A will see seniors 65-74 years old, and First Nation and Metis people 50-64 years old who are living on or off reserve or settlement be eligible for the vaccine.

Staff and residents of licensed supportive living facilities not covered in Phase 1 will also be eligible.

Phase 2A is expected to begin in April, but will depend on supplies, Kenney said.

Phase 2B doesn’t have a start date, but will include Albertans aged 18-64 with underlying health conditions.

Shandro said the health conditions will be determined by “extensive analysis” of data and literature and will identify the conditions that put people at highest risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19.

In Phase 2C, residents and staff in congregate living facilities including correctional facilities, homeless shelters and group homes for disabilities, mental health and other licensed supportive living will be eligible for the vaccine.

In Phase 2D, Albertans aged 50-64 and First Nations and Metis people aged 35-49 living on or off reserve or settlement will be eligible.

According to the premier, the plan has the ability to ramp up the number of vaccines a week and the province is shooting for over 200,000 a week before the end of March.

If other vaccines are approved and made available in Canada, Alberta will consider adding other groups like people who deal with the public on a day-to-day basis to Phase 2.
