COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada

The Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 has been approved by Health Canada, and the Moderna vaccine is pending approval and will be delivered once approved.

 

The COVID-19 vaccines require two doses, spaced several weeks apart, and will be free for everyone in British Columbia.

 

Initial vaccines will be administered to high-priority populations, with first priority for residents and workers in long-term care and assisted living facilities. More vaccines are expected to be available in January 2021.

 

Priority vaccine groups include:

  • Residents and staff of congregate living settings that provide care for seniors such as long-term care homes.
  • Adults 70 years of age and older, beginning with adults 80 years of age and older, then decreasing the age limit by 5-year increments to age 70 as supply becomes available.
  • Health care workers (including all those who work in health care settings and personal support workers whose work involves direct contact with patients).
  • Adults in Indigenous communities where infection can have disproportionate consequences. 

 

OUR PURPOSE

SERVICE TO THE HOSPITAL COMMUNITY:

We are a non-profit community based society that is committed to the enhancement of health care in our hospital. Our strength lies with our members who dedicate their time, support and knowledge in one of our many services.  Our dedicated volunteers provide service, care and comfort at UHNBC.


RAISING FUNDS:

The Auxiliary operates two businesses: The Auxiliary Gift Shop and the Auxiliary Thrift Shop.  Proceeds from our businesses support priority medical equipment and Student Bursaries at CNC and UHNBC.

 OUR PARTNERSHIPS

THE BCAHA:

The British Columbia Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries is the Provincial ‘Umbrella’ body that provides support to Auxiliaries throughout the province.  Together, in 2017, BC Auxiliaries donated just under $9 million to purchase specialized medical equipment and $277,000.00 in bursaries to support youth pursuing careers in healthcare.

THE SPIRIT OF THE NORTH HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION:

 

The Auxiliary is proud to be a President’s Club member of the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation.  Our donations to ‘The Spirit’ have helped to provide our hospital in Prince George with new and state of the art equipment which has reduced wait times and better health outcomes for patients in the north.
