Phases 2C and 2D of vaccination opened today.

People in these groups include:

  • Albertans between the ages of 50 and 64
  • First Nations, Métis and Inuit between the ages of 35 and 49
  • Staff and residents who provide care or support to Albertans in facilities or in the community previously not offered immunization
  • Caregivers of Albertans who are most at risk of severe outcomes
  • Firefighters and front-line policing and provincial sheriffs who interact with residents at shelters, correctional facilities and remand centres
  • Canadian Border Security Agency staff

Covid-19 vaccinations continue, with 292,765 people fully immunized with both doses and a total of 1,528,569 doses administered across the province.

The shots have led to a total of 249 adverse reactions to date, representing 0.02 per cent, or about two in 10,000.

All working Albertans can access three hours of paid, job-protected leave to get each dose of the vaccine. 

Isolated seniors and those with mobility challenges can call 211 for help finding a ride to an appointment.

One case of VITT, a rare blood clot disorder connnected to the AstraZeneca vaccine, was confirmed April 16. The patient is recovering.

Vaccines take time to work. Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines show protection starting 12 to 14 days after the first dose. You are still vulnerable to contracting the virus before this time, and even afterwards there is still a small chance of contracting the virus or passing it along to others.


Those who have been immunized must continue to follow public health measures in order to protect themselves and others from Covid-19.

R values

April 19 to 25, 2021

R values are provided weekly on Mondays.

Also known as the reproduction number, R values describe whether cases are currently increasing, decreasing or staying the same (i.e. the average number of people someone infected with Covid-19 will infect).

If the R value is one, then an infected person will, on average, infect one other person.

An R value below one means the rate of transmission was decreasing during that period and if it is above one, it was increasing.

Current rates are in bold. As an indication of trends, values below are statistics from Dec. 7 to 13, 2020, to the most recent.
