“The very real world evidence shows us we have good protection across the board with both vaccines in our community,” B.C. provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said
Henry says B.C. is informing people to make the choice right for them, adding that all vaccines in B.C. are “safe and highly effective, and so are all of the options.”
“We still know from the information that we are seeing here in B.C., but also primarily in the U.K., where a lot of AstraZeneca has been used, that vaccine effectiveness is very good for both AstraZeneca and the mRNA vaccines,” Henry said.
