B.C. health officials will be holding their weekly COVID-19 availability Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix will speak at 1:30 p.m. PT.
Henry and Dix will likely face questions about Pfizer’s application to Health Canada to approve its COVID-19 vaccine for children ages five to 11.
Last month, Henry told reporters that the province is “actively preparing” so it will be ready to roll out the shot to children once it is approved.
Health officials are also looking to make sure parents have all of the information they would need to make a decision about whether to have their child immunized.
