Ninety-four per cent of health professionals fully vaccinated in B.C.

The B.C. government is reporting that approximately 94 per cent of healthcare workers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or medically exempt.

This accounts for 17 of the 18 health regulatory colleges.

They say early data shows the vaccination status for nurses and midwives is around 99 per cent and will raise the total.
