Over half of Eligible New Brunswickers Now Fully Vaccinated

More than half of the eligible population of New Brunswick have had both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. As of today, 53.5 per cent of New Brunswickers aged 12 and older are fully vaccinated and 79.9 per cent have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

“We are making great progress and it is wonderful to see New Brunswickers enjoying somewhat closer to normal activities while experiencing what summer in our province is all about,” said Health Minister Dorothy Shephard. “However, COVID-19 variants remain a concern, so we must continue to follow the advice of Public Health and get vaccinated as soon as possible. Each day we are getting closer to our goal of fully vaccinating 75 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers, which will allow us to lift restrictions like wearing a mask indoors and physical distancing in the near future.”

“I want to remind New Brunswickers that it is safe to use either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for your second dose, regardless of which vaccine you received at your first appointment,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health. “Our strategy of using vaccines interchangeably has allowed us to quickly vaccinate more people, protecting us all from the threat of COVID-19.”

Public Health reported no new cases of COVID-19 today. The number of confirmed cases in New Brunswick is 2,336. Since yesterday, there have been two new recoveries for a total of 2,287 recoveries. There have been 46 deaths and the number of active cases is two. No one is hospitalized in New Brunswick. Since yesterday, 693 tests were conducted for a total of 370,735.
