What will open and when? More about Alberta’s ‘Open for Summer’ plan

Kenney says Tuesday's announcement doesn't mean those who haven't booked their first dose have lost their spot in line.

The premier says as long as there are no more vaccine shipment delays, everyone should be able to have their second dose by the end of the summer.

Every Albertan who has received their first dose of vaccine will be able to book an appointment for their second shot by the end of June, Premier Jason Kenney promised during Tuesday's press conference.

Anyone vaccinated in April can book their second dose starting June 14.

"After carefully reviewing the evidence from other jurisdictions, while AstraZeneca is still a good choice, we will offer Albertans a choice", Shandro said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 2.8 million vaccine doses had been administered in Alberta, with about 63.4 per cent of the eligible population vaccinated with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Alberta has already met these targets and, with a mandated two-week interval between stage progression, the province could potentially advance to the next stage as early as June 10.

Nearly all of the public health regulations are expected to be rescinded by early July.Hinshaw has said Alberta's reopening plan will succeed as long as Albertans continue to exercise caution, physically distance, mask-up and get their vaccinations as soon as possible.

The changes announced last week are linked to more people getting vaccinated for COVID-19 and hospitalization numbers dropping.

At that time, restaurants will also be allowed to have diners inside rather than just on the patio.

He advises people to continue being as safe as possible even after reopening and recommends they stay away from large gatherings until receiving the second dose.

Alberta is on track to move to Stage 2 of the reopening plan by June 10.

The update is expected to include Alberta's second dose distribution strategy for COVID-19 vaccines.

This comes after case counts continued to decline over the weekend.

The province has set a target for moving to Stage 3 by late June or early July that would lift almost all pandemic-related restrictions.

Hospitalizations due to the virus lowered to 439, a decrease of seven people since Sunday.

"Rather than having an event simply to have it in 2021, we want to work with our stakeholders and partners on relaunching K-Days in 2022", Northlands, the K-Days organizer, said in a statement.
