Burnaby youth with Down syndrome asks for fast-tracked vaccination against COVID-19

An interesting article by the CBC this week about a concerned Burnaby youth about the delays in the vaccination rollout and how this will impact vulnerable populations.

On Friday, the premier and health officials revealed its plans for a four phase timeline for the vaccine based on age, which has a family in Burnaby, B.C. pleading for swifter access for their teenage son and others with Down syndrome.

The point is being made that if someone is younger they will likely fall down the list even if they have a condition which may make them more vulnerable. They are hoping that highlighting this will allow for some change in approach in the weeks and months to come as the vaccination effort rolls out across the province.
