I’m glad to see that the new Premier has listened to concerned Nova Scotians and chosen to accept these 13,000 doses of vaccine. It is troubling that the government initially saw these doses as a burden, rather than a blessing.
I hope that by the time future vaccines are approved by Health Canada, Premier Rankin will have a plan in place to be flexible and vaccinate more Nova Scotians.
There are still many first responders who were moved out of the first phase of vaccinations. I hope the Premier will think of them and their hard work when deciding what to do with future doses.
