Seafarer vaccination trials underway

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > Local > Seafarer vaccination trials underway

The Chamber of Shipping has been working with local health authorities and industry partners to support the vaccination of seafarers arriving at west coast ports. Over the past week and a half clinicians visited five vessels in the Lower Mainland and vaccinated just over 75 crew members.  Three vessels were boarded at anchor in English Bay in a trial with Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and Ceres Global. Tymac Launch delivered the team and vaccines safely to these vessels for the trial.  While we are continuing to adapt the program to support the efficient delivery of vaccines to the seafarers, we are pleased that Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health authorities continue to be flexible in supporting this activity.  Contact our office or Ceres Global for more information on upcoming dates over the next two weeks.
