More than 60% receive first vaccine Nearly 61% of eligible New Brunswickers have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to Public Health.

While more New Brunswickers are getting the jab, there are still appointments available at several vaccination clinics.

On Saturday, Health Canada extended the expiry date of some AstraZenica vaccine by a month. Thousands of doses were set to expire on May 31, but Health Canada said a review of “stability data” prompted the change. Those doses will now have an expiry date of July 1.
