The provincial government will soon launch another public awareness campaign, urging parents to have their children fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The move comes as inoculation rates among children stall in B-C.
Only 57 percent of kids between 5 and 11 have received their first shot, the second-lowest rate in the country, only behind Alberta.
Officials describe it as a “comprehensive” effort to boost immunizations.
That compares to an 89 percent rate in those 12 to 17, and more than 91 percent among adults.
