The first COVID-19 vaccines were adminstered in Terrace this weekend.

Mills Memorial Hospital received its first shipment of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, and held its first vaccination clinics for high risk health care workers and long-term care residents. 

A number of staff who work in acute care departments caring for COVID-19 patients were immunized on Saturday, as were 20 long-term care residents from Terraceview Lodge.

Northern Health is distributing the vaccine in accordance with the priority vaccine groups as recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization, beginning with high-risk health care workers, long-term care and assisted living residents.

Health authorities said as more vaccines are approved by Health Canada, more communities and more groups of people will receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

They expect to be able to immunize all Northern BC residents who wish to have the vaccine by the end of 2021
