 Dear Premier Blaine Higgs

 Re: High- Dose Vaccination

On behalf of the Coalition for Seniors and Nursing Home Residents’ Rights, I write as a follow up  regarding your commitment during the election campaign that if re- elected the government will implement the high - dose flu vaccination for citizens over the age of 65. You further confirmed your position when we met in Riverview on September 8, 2020.

 As articulated in your press release on September 16, 2020, in Perth Andover, “Getting the flu vaccine is more important than ever to protect ourselves and the people around us from the flu and as well help reduce the strain on our health care system in light of the COVID pandemic.” 

We are given to understand a meeting between the Federal Government and the Provinces urging them to get their volume and order in for 2021 since there is a global demand for the high dose vaccine. Can you confirm as to whether New Brunswick has placed their order for the high-dose vaccine?

Will the government undertake to commit and ensure that all New Brunswickers for 2021 be provided with the high-dose vaccine committed during the election campaign?

 I look forward to your earliest response in this regard.

 Regards.

 Cecile Cassista

Hon. Bruce Fitch, Hon Dorothy Shephard, Heidi Liston, Gerald Richard, Paul D’Astous

The aging population is the most vulnerable group during the flu Season

The influenza vaccination is highly recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) for Seniors. The importance of preventive measures through vaccination will enhance the well-being for a quality of life for all seniors.


The Coalition for Seniors and Nursing Home Residents' Rights publicly endorses the high-dose influenza vaccine for Seniors and is calling on the Higgs Government to ensure sufficient supply of the vaccine is purchased to protect seniors against the flu  season for 2021.


In 2020, during the pre-election, the Higgs Government promised that they would publicly fund and implement the high-dose flu vaccination for all citizens over the age of 65.


The government fell short of providing the high-dose vaccine to all seniors in 2020.


The Coalition for Seniors and Nursing Home Residents' Rights calls on the Higgs Government to undertake to commit and ensure that all seniors for 2021 be provided with the high-dose vaccine as committed during the re-election campaign.

                               

                        Do any of these points matter to you?

      1. Is the quality of life an interest for protecting your health?  
      2. Is protecting yourself from the flu vaccine important for your well being?
      3. Is the National Advisory Committee (NACI) recommended high-dose fluzone extra strand flu vaccine something you would prefer to protect your well-being?
      4. Are you interested in the vaccination that will enhance your well  being for a quality of life
