British Columbia health officials say they've added a senior official to the province's immunization response team to help with the program as it gets more complex.

Dr. Penny Ballem will be the executive lead and work with the health minister and other officials to ensure the province is ready for community immunization when the vaccine supply is more readily available in April.

So far, 63,430 people have received a COVID-19 vaccine in B.C. and officials say work is underway to align the available supply with a person's level of risk.

The province is reporting 519 new cases of COVID-19 and 12 more deaths.

The total number of infections in B.C. stood at 59,072 on Wednesday with 1,031 fatalities.

B.C.'s active case count has dipped below 5,000.

There are 4,810 active cases of COVID-19 in the province.

Another 51,893 people have recovered from the virus.
