As of Friday, July 23, 2021, 80.3% (3,723,154) of eligible people 12 and older in B.C. have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 58.1% (2,692,024) have received their second dose.

In addition, 81.3% (3,517,529) of all eligible adults in B.C. have received their first dose and 61.4% (2,654,367) have received their second dose.

B.C. is reporting 112 new cases of COVID-19, including six epi-linked cases, for a total of 148,842 cases in the province.

There are currently 603 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, and 146,463 people who tested positive have recovered. Of the active cases, 46 individuals are currently in hospital and 17 are in intensive care. The remaining people are recovering at home in self-isolation.

The new/active cases include:

  • 30 new cases in Fraser Health
  • 15 new cases in Vancouver Coastal Health
  • 59 new cases in Interior Health
  • three new cases in Northern Health
  • five new cases in Island Health
  • no new cases of people who reside outside of Canada

In the last 24 hours, four new deaths have been reported, for an overall total of 1,767.

The new deaths include:

  • Fraser Health: one
  • Vancouver Costal Health: one
  • Interior Health: two

Currently, there are two active outbreaks in:

  • acute care: Laurel Place at Surrey Memorial Hospital (Fraser Health)
  • long-term care: Holyrood Manor (Fraser Health)
  • assisted or independent living: none

Since December 2020, the Province has administered 6,422,503 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines.

Data related to active cases in the province is being reconciled by removing 239 historic cases from B.C.’s total. This reflects B.C. residents who tested positive for COVID-19, but did not fall under the case and contact followup program in their home health authorities. Examples include cases who tested positive while staying out of province, or who were under the federal quarantine program.
