Vaccine Clinics

Here are graphs of BC’s first and second dose rates by age:

Variants

I mentioned in yesterday’s General post that the Netherlands is seeing a meteoric rise in cases. There are two things I should have mentioned:

  • The Dutch removed almost all restrictions on 26 June, just five days before BC removed almost all our restrictions. A lot of the spread in the Netherlands has been at nightclubs. (BC does still have restrictions on socializing between tables and on dancing.)
  • The Dutch vaccination rate is almost as good as BC’s: they have first/second dose percentages of 65.26%/39.2% vs. our 69.44%/43.2%.

The Dutch case counts started inching up on four days after restrictions were lifted, and really took off on about ten days later. We saw cases inch up five days after restrictions were lifted. Today is eleven days after restrictions were lifted, and while our cases went up a little, they appear to be stable.

However, Malta’s recent cases graph looks as scary as the Dutch one, and Malta has vaccinated a higher percentage of people than BC, and in fact higher than almost anywhere else in the world. On 30 June, they allowed tourists to enter without quarantining, and look what happened:

Malta’s first/second dose vax rate is 84.1%/79.1%. (This article says Malta mostly used mRNA vaxes; this article said they also used AZ.) This article says that 12.5% of the recent cases were in fully vaccinated people.

Bottom line: fear the Delta!

Mental Health

The province wants to remind people of mental health resources and announce a few new ones.

Moderna still owes us 845,840 doses from two weeks ago.

We have 823,159 doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 12.7 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d received by 14 days ago.

We have 758,549 mRNA doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 11.7 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d received by 14 days ago.

We have 64,610 AZ doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 150.5 days at last week’s rate.
