Health Canada is only « days » away from deciding whether to approve Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.
In this case, Canada’s efforts to immunize our path to the end of the pandemic are expanded to include a fourth option, and the first option requires only one dose.
Coupled with a new recommendation Thursday that the provinces delay the second dose of the other vaccines for up to four months, Canada is likely to be able to offer a vaccine dose to every adult before Canada Day.
But that dosage recommendation and confusion over whether the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is effective for seniors has heightened concerns that more Canadians do not trust the vaccines enough to take their turn when it comes to their turn / p>
Dr. Health Canada chief medical officer Supriya Sharma says she is concerned about the vaccine hesitation and would of course prefer if the science surrounding vaccines never changes.
But Sharma says that science doesn’t work that way and it would be irresponsible not to adjust vaccine guidelines when more data becomes available.
Dr. Supriya Sharma, Chief Medical Officer at Health Canada, will hold a press conference in Ottawa on Friday, February 26, 2021 to keep up to date with the rollout of COVID-19 pandemics and vaccines in Canada. (THE CANADIAN PRESS / Sean Kilpatrick)
