After a holiday season that was unlike any other in recent memory, 2021 is starting with some positive news for the Skeena Region. An initial shipment of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has arrived in Terrace.
Northern Health captured in photos the historic moment when Mills Memorial Hospital “held its first vaccination clinics for high risk health care workers and long-term care residents.”
The health authority explained in a recent Facebook post that “a number of staff who work in acute care departments caring for COVID-19 patients were immunized on Saturday, as were 20 long-term care residents from Terraceview Lodge.”
