We have been dealing with COVID-19 for one year now. With many thanks to health professionals, we are now at the stage where Albertans are being vaccinated against this virus. This means we can protect the most vulnerable and look towards an end to restrictions and getting our economy back on track in the coming months.
It has been a challenging year; pandemic, global recession and a crash in energy prices. Alberta’s government has put lives and livelihoods first with implementing programs and supports for those who have been impacted. Our work is not yet done in battling the pandemic.
Vaccines are a critical way to limit the spread of the virus. They are effective, safe, and protect our health as well as the health of family and community members.
I am encouraging all of you, who are able, to get the vaccination when it is available to you. This will not only help to protect lives, but will allow Albertans to get back to work. For more details concerning the roll out, please visit www.alberta.ca.
I am optimistic that with Albertans continuing to do their part in following the guidelines and getting the vaccination, Alberta will see our province open up and we can work towards rebuilding our economy through Alberta’s Recovery Plan.
Thank you once again for continuing to follow health guidelines during these challenging times.
As always, if you need to get in touch with me on any provincial issue or have questions, please feel free to reach out to my office at Calgary.Varsity@assembly.ab.ca.
