FNHA Statement on shortage of Pfizer mRNA vaccines

​A global delay in receiving vaccine doses from Pfizer may affect the start date of some vaccination clinics in British Columbia First Nations communities. Health officials in BC are expecting a shortfall of approximately 60,000 doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine over the coming weeks. While the FNHA received the Moderna vaccine, in some regions the regional health authority has provided Pfizer vaccines to support community clinics.
The FNHA is continuing to work with our provincial and federal partners to prioritize available doses for First Nations communities, however there will likely be a delay, and important to note this is not a cancellation, in the short-term until global vaccine supplies increase.
The FNHA will continue to provide regular updates on this rapidly changing situation and is working to make sure the vaccine can be accessed as soon as possible. Please remember that we all need to continue to practice all the recommended public health measures to stay safe, even after receiving the vaccine.
