February 16, 2021 – CBC PEI: Rotational workers are beginning to receive calls to get COVID-19 vaccinations on PEI, Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison said in her regular briefing on Tuesday. She said international rotational workers — including airline pilots, military personnel and truck drivers — will be vaccinated first in the next round of shots, from oldest to youngest.
She said 10,610 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered on PEI as of Saturday, including 4,900 second doses.
By the end of March, she expects 10-12 per cent of PEI’s adult population will be immunized. Morrison said she personally has not yet been vaccinated, but is looking forward to it when her turn comes.
Marion Dowling, PEI chief of nursing, said all residents and staff of long-term care homes on the Island have had their second vaccination clinics, and those who are waiting to move in are receiving their first vaccinations.
