The B.C. Ministry of Health says it is working on a plan that will require doctors and dentists who operate out of private practices to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Health care workers who don’t work at public facilities such as hospitals aren’t currently required to be vaccinated. But a spokesperson for the ministry told Black Press Media that will change.

“We are actively working on the details of the order such as how to determine if registrants are vaccinated and how to collect that information. We will release the order as soon as these details are finalized.”
