British Columbia health officials say the province ranks among the highest in the world in the number of people who have their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
In a news release, they say more than 76 per cent of eligible people have received their first shot while 710,847 people have had their second.
Health officials say a number of locations are offering extended hours and mobile clinics so more people can get immunized.
British Columbia entered step two of its four-step reopening plan Tuesday by allowing outdoor personal gatherings of up to 50 people, opening recreational travel across health regions and loosening other restrictions.
