Not really, Atlantic Canada might still have some, but most of Canada there isn't. BC did seek legal advice regarding closing the BC borders to non-BC residents and essential travel only but apparently was told legally it wasn't possible, and I suppose BC isn't willing to take on that legal fight and I can't blame them as BC would likely lose in court from what it sounds like.

50 hours non stop driving. It takes 24 hours non stop to leave Ontario.
But yes you can't apply that argument that everyone is huddled together because we aren't.

Because they have the NHS with a similar structure throughout.
Here each province will be doing things differently. In Ontario it's the Health Units who will organise distribution and administering the vaccine.

Peterborough students have been partying. 34 students with COVID now in isolation. What fun.

Regina General Hospital has reported an outbreak in the mother and baby unit, so best of luck to everyone in there.

Variants of concern are on the rise in BC, province having trouble identifying chain of transmission for 25% of the variant cases. (variants of concern are those such the one first identified in UK or South Africa, UK one seems most common.)

Of the 564 new cases today, 46 were variants of concern.

"rolling average of new cases, as well as the number of active cases are at their highest point since Jan. 13 and the number of hospitalizations is the highest since Feb. 5. "

298,851 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine have been administered with 86,746 second doses given.

If Saskatchewan had given out nearly 300,000 doses we'd have 1/4 of our total population vaccinated. Hopefully when supplies start rolling in the pace will pick up. There are some good reasons for the initial program being slow off the mark, but on a graph it looks bad.

No official time line for delivery for J&J but likely no earlier than April. They have faced some production problems and behind a bit on deliveries in the US so that could impact deliveries to Canada.

I never did think of pain level differences between them. Only vaccine I can say hurts every time and I dread getting it, is tetanus, damn thing hurts at the day and lingering pain for a few days, luckily its only a once a decade type vaccine.

I have no memory of the childhood vaccines, and flu and tetanus is all I have ever gotten as an adult.

J&J is only 1 jab - so might be the one to choose

Maybe it's one jab because it's a real big needle! 🤣

Gone are the days when jabs were from a huge glass syringe, with a long thick needle.

Pfizer bumps deliveries a bit for Canada.

"Canada will get 1.5 million more doses of Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine delivered this month, and another two million doses that were set to arrive in the summer will now come in April and May."
