B.C. healthcare professionals required to report vaccination status

A new provincial health order has been issued, requiring all of the province’s healthcare professionals to disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status.

The order comes from the office of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO).

According to the B.C. government, professional health colleges will be required to provide personal information about their registered members to the Ministry of Health.

“This enables the ministry to match the data to the provincial immunization registry to obtain registrants’ vaccination status. The provincial government notified colleges regulating these professionals of this requirement on March 4th,” said B.C. government officials.
