British Columbia's vaccine card program is being extended until the end of June.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says the government is trying to mitigate the risks of spreading COVID-19 and the vaccine card is specifically designed to allow certain businesses and activities to remain open.

She says the province will re-examine the proposed end date if conditions improve.

While the number of COVID-19 infections is dipping, Henry says hospitalizations are at the highest point of the pandemic.

B.C.'s vaccine card, which shows proof of vaccination for those 12 years and older, is used to access restaurants, indoor events, fitness centres and other facilities.
