"As important as how many and how fast is who we have vaccinated", said Fletcher, stressing that a key goal has been alleviating pressure on the health care system from COVID-19 cases.

Since April 1, there have been 916 new confirmed COVID-19 cases that are variants of concern in our province, for a total of 3,559 cases (588 are active). But the number of cases of the P.1 variant continues to rise, with a total of 737 now confirmed.

The Central government has made a decision to close the registration of healthcare and frontline workers for Covid-19 vaccination after reports of fake registration under these categories came to the fore.

The Union Helath Ministry added that there were reports that some ineligible beneficiaries of the prior categories were misusing the government's order and were adding their names in order to receive COVID-19 vaccine jab in violation of the guidelines issued by the Centre and this was blocking others who are now eligible to receive the vaccine shot.

"We know this virus is constantly changing and some of the new variants can spread more easily, but the same measures we know can still stop the spread and we have safe and effective vaccines on our side now".

"Given the trajectory we are on, we believe this is the right time to put our program into higher gear", Murphy said, in part.
