Thunder Bay’s COVID-19 vaccine program is a collaborative effort between the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU). TBRHSC has revised information on the Pfizer vaccination rollout from the provincial government which gave an update today, following Pfizer’s decision to pause and slow down their supply chain for a few weeks. As you know, we are expecting considerably fewer vaccination doses than originally planned over the next few weeks.
Clearly, given these unplanned changes in vaccination availability, many scheduled appointments will need to be rescheduled. People who had appointments will be contacted directly.
To date, more than 2,600 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Thunder Bay, with 100% of Long Term Care residents who requested the vaccine having now been vaccinated in the City of Thunder Bay. Over half of LTC staff have also been vaccinated, some with second doses already.
