For the fifth day in a row, New Brunswick is reporting no cases of COVID-19 on Saturday.

With one new recovery, the active cases dwindle to six. New Brunswick's last case was on Monday, July 5.

VACCINATIONS CLIMB

More than 49.1 per cent of New Brunwickers are now fully vaccinated.

The province says as of Saturday, it has administered 890,757 vaccine doses, 340,583 of which are second doses.

The  next stage target date in its reopening plan is August 2, as long as at least 75 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers have received two doses.

All eligible New Brunswickers can book their second dose appointments if at least 28 days have passed since their first dose.

To receive their second dose, residents are asked to bring a signed consent form, their Medicare card, and a copy of the record of immunization provided after receiving their first dose.

Appointments for people who have not yet received their first dose continue to be available to all New Brunswickers aged 12 and older at regional health authority clinics and through participating pharmacies.

Public Health is also reminding New Brunswickers to keep a copy of their Record of Immunization form as their official proof of vaccination.
