Vax recognition problem

I followed Canadian federal advice earlier this year that said get the covid vaccine as soon as you can, wherever you can.

So, I received two doses of Sinovac (CoronaVac, PiCoVacc) while in Mexico. I was to also receive a Pfizer booster back in Canada on Sept. 21.

The problem now is B.C. (like the U.S.) recognizes the Sinovac, so they have refused to give me a second Pfizer (shot) because according to them, I have had three vaccinations.

But the Canadian federal government does not recognize Sinovac. It says I have only had one acceptable vaccination (Pfizer).

Unfortunately, the federal government dictates I cannot use transport in Canada to be a snowbird this year and I don't see how I can change my situation.

It's such a mess by the federal government.
