Alberta reports 139 new cases of COVID-19, total active cases at lowest point since early March – CBC

Hinshaw says province considering speeding up second dose appointments

Jun 08, 2021

Alberta is looking at the possibility of accelerating second dose appointments as it bolsters its contact tracing work to contain the spread of highly infectious variants, Dr. Deena Hinshaw said Tuesday.

The province’s chief medical officer of health said the delta variant, first identified in India and now driving a wave of new cases in the U.K., made up about five per cent of the total number of new variants found in the province last week.

A single dose of Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine is only about 33 per cent effective against the delta variant three weeks after the shot, according to a recent finding from Public Health England.

While Hinshaw says the variant “is a very small proportion” of Alberta’s cases, the province is watching it closely as it considers the timing of second doses.
