4th COVID Booster Coming to Menno Place

We are excited to hear that Dr. Bonnie Henry has promised a 4th COVID-19 vaccine dose for those 70 and older as well as for vulnerable individuals.

Dr. Bonnie Henry made the announcement on April 5th that a fourth shot will be provided to those who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable. “This is a really important measure for us, said Dr. Bonnie Henry. “We know that the older we are, the sooner the [COVID-19] antibodies will wane”.

We expect that the fourth dose will be made available to the residents and tenants at Menno Place during the month of April.

A fourth dose is not being recommended at this time for the remainder of the population.

Proof of Vaccination Still Required for Visiting

As you may have heard, it was announced yesterday that as of Friday April 8th, the BC vaccine passport will no longer be required. Meaning that as of Friday anyone will be permitted to go to restaurants, movie theatres, indoor concert and sports venues, and anywhere else that the provincial vaccine card was previously required.

It is important to note however, that there have not been any changes announced for the requirements to visit in Long Term Care and Assisted Living.

As such, proof of vaccination will continue to be required in order to gain entry to visit residents and tenants at Menno Place.

If you are planning to visit a resident or tenant, please be prepared to show your proof of vaccination along with verifying identification to the screener upon arrival. If you do not have a vaccine passport, you may show your vaccine card or other documentation as proof.

Please also note that masking and rapid testing protocols remain unchanged at this time.
