In the last week, there has been conflicting information on whether all Revelstokians are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. The Review can confirm that appointments are available for people in their 20s, as all its own staff booked an appointment today.

While most of the province is vaccinating people aged 71+ and Aboriginal people 18+, the province made an exception for Revelstoke as the community has one of the highest rates for the virus in B.C.

In the latest weekly COVID-19 numbers for Revelstoke, there were 18 new COVID-19 cases. As of April 5, 1,080 people had received their first dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, another 60 have had two doses and are fully vaccinated.
