25 Dec 20 Canada’s health regulator authorized a second COVID-19 vaccine Wednesday and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he will extend the suspension of flights from the United Kingdom because of a new variant there, calling the situation “very serious.”Health Canada said the vaccine from U.S. biotech firm Moderna is safe for use in the country and Moderna said it anticipates starting shipments to Canada within 48 hours.It follows the Dec. 9 approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
Up to 168,000 doses of the Moderna shot are set to arrive by the end of December, and 2 million by the end of March.Canada is to get 40 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine in 2021, enough to vaccinate 20 million people, or about two-thirds of the Canadian adult population.
