‘Get vaccinated’: Northern B.C. doctor warns local ER could close amid rampant COVID | Globalnews.ca

A family physician in Vanderhoof, B.C., is pleading with community residents to get vaccinated amid surging COVID-19 cases that have put the local hospital’s operations at risk.

Dr. Rebecca Janssen works at St. John Hospital, where she said staff were barely able to cover shifts this weekend when a key doctor fell ill with COVID-19.

“His shifts looked to be very difficult to cover with the resources we had in the community. It was only with a lot of effort and scrambling yesterday we managed to cover those shifts,” she said.
