In 2020, the pandemic completely shattered the business meeting and event industry. When the BC Ministry of Health approached the hospitality industry to support the Immunize BC program, #PDS was ready to make an impact in our industry and our community.
We hired 200+ industry professionals for logistical and registration services. Our team helped those folks visiting the vaccination clinics feel safe and supported. Over 175,000 vaccines were administered at our vaccination sites, helping to bring BC’s first-dose immunization rates to 80% of our total provincial population.
Our team worked seven days a week and travelled over 500,000 kilometres setting up clinics in urban, rural and remote BC communities. Through it all, we were continuously inspired by the strength and resilience we saw from British Columbians and are grateful for the opportunity to serve our industry and our province.
And we’re not done yet! PDS continues to support the vaccine rollout as boosters become available across the province alongside our partners at Vancouver Coastal Health, Interior Health Authority, Northern Health and Immunize BC.
