November has been seafarer vaccination month in Nanaimo. Foreign seafarers calling Port of Nanaimo have obtained Covid-19 vaccinations at berth and at anchor over the last few weeks. Island Health in partnership with Nanaimo Port Authority (NPA) is offering vaccines (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson) within the port authority’s jurisdiction. The initiative is free of cost to the ships calling the port of Nanaimo and is in line with the port’s mission to support the vaccination initiative to protect marine workers. With the positive and appreciative comments received, NPA intends to continue supporting the seafarer vaccination program for the foreseeable future in collaboration with Island Health and Chamber of Shipping.
