Don't have a strong opinion on this, but I'd say it's a little early to be calling for this.

I have an opinion, they can go #### themselves. I am not staying locked down any longer so a bunch of amateur athletes can go get freaky in athletes village for two weeks.

But think of the poor break dancers!



By the way, I totally agree with you.

If we are into general vaccinations at the start of June I donít have an issue with Olympic athletes going ahead of me.

If we havenít vaccinated 50+ yet then I would be opposed.

Yeah if he missed the obvious switch to Richard, statements like this one donít shock me.

I'm okay with this. The amount of vaccine is negligible, it would work out to 30-40 fewer doses in Alberta - total.

If they want it now? Hard no. If they want it in June? Probably not a big deal at that point.

When they talk about all Canadians being vaccinated by September, I assume that means everyone. It seems there's going to be at least 30% of the population who are dumb enough to not want it. So by June most people who want it should have it.

It's probably more than that if you include coaches and support staff.

Easy solution.... have the athletes start training just outside the vaccine injection centres.

Then, rather than throwing out a leftover dose at the end of the day, they just poke an athlete.

A win-win-win-gold solution.

I have a friend with an elderly parent, serious existing health issues so they're eager to get the vaccine.

How do the older at risk people sign up or get in line? Sorry if this covered already, I scanned but didn't see any mention.

unless they are in long term care no action required right now as there are no options available.


I assume (but that may be dangerous) that this will be well messaged once an option. I would think at least through January given the very modest supply earmarked for Alberta we are looking at vaccinating LTC residents, staff, home care workers and a very narrow band of front line health care workers

I don't see a significant difference between these two comments.

I was chatting with my neighbor who works at a long term care centre and a few nurses. It seems that you are approached by those in charge of deploying it based on certain criteria.

Alberta registers about 3800 vaccinations today, BC with a big day jumps into the lead- both provinces have now used up about 75% of the vaccine on hand


another record day nation wide 38 000 vaccinations. the Yukon has snuck in behind PEI for most vaccinated per capita. 1/130 Albertans have now had a single dose
