On Friday's Tantramar Report:

There are two upcoming walk-in vaccine clinics, including one today at the Salisbury Baptist Church and another tomorrow at the Corner Drug Store in Sackville. Usually walk-in clinics are limited to those 18 and older, since they provide the Moderna vaccine, but the clinic at the Corner Drug Store will have 60 doses of Pfizer to give out.

CHMA hears how last-minute cancellations and no-shows resulted in the waste of over 50 Moderna doses at the Vitalite clinic yesterday. Clinic staff started the day prepared to administer 649 doses of Moderna vaccine, but on the day of the clinic, more than 100 no shows and last minute cancellations came in.

The Shediac RCMP is looking to the public for information on the whereabouts of a 14-year-old boy who has been missing for over ten days. 14-year-old Asher Thien was reported missing to police on July 5 and police are now asking the public to keep an eye out for him. 

Struts and Faucet’s Production Manager Lucas Morneau is teaching members how to fly a drone responsibly this afternoon. The media centre recently acquired the drone, which is just light enough that members can fly it without a licence. That being said, there are important rules drone users need to follow to avoid upsetting local wildlife or the authorities.

New Brunswick’s “no new case” streak has been broken after seven new travel-related cases were identified. The new cases bring the active count up to eight, but no one is in the hospital.
