David Shepherd, NDP Critic for Health, made the following statement:

“The Premier and his Health Minister continue to change their story about the progress of the COVID-19 vaccine program.

"On Thursday, it was reported there were thousands of vacant appointments that healthcare workers could sign up for. On Friday, Albertans were informed that some vaccination appointments would be cancelled in weeks to come and Tyler Shandro was unable to clarify how we could have both excess and a shortage.

“Albertans need leadership. We need to hear from the experts, not members of the UCP cabinet that are prioritizing scoring political points over providing clear information. This government has lost the trust of the people.”
