EDMONTON – We’ll be getting an update this afternoon on the vaccine rollout in Alberta.

Premier Jason Kenney will join Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw for the announcement scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

We’ll have the update streamed live on this site and our Facebook page.

Earlier this week, Hinshaw said the timeline to receive second doses could be moved up, as demand drops for first shots, and concern grows over the more contagious Delta variant that originated in India.

Anyone who received their first dose in march or earlier is currently eligible to book a second vaccine, while those who got a shot in April can book a second on Monday.

Those who received their initial shot in may can book a second on June 28.
