The plan is to roll it out to around 180 long-term care homes next week.

How many vaccine doses does the European Union have?

The Manitoba government is extending its COVID-19 restrictions for another two weeks.

In future years, it is thought that Covid-19 vaccines will need to be tweaked annually much in the same way the winter flu jab is.

Public gatherings have been limited to five people and most social gatherings inside private homes have been forbidden.

The European Medicines Agency said its human medicines committee recommended updating the product information for the vaccine to clarify that each vial contains six doses instead of the five that were advised when it originally green-lighted the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on December 21.

As for the Moderna vaccine, distributed every three weeks, 171,600 doses will be delivered next week, then 170,000 more during the first week of February; 250,000 other doses will then be delivered at the end of February, then 1.24 million in March.

Montefiori said he is studying how effective the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are against the complete British variant, and South African researchers are doing the same thing with the strain that emerged in their country, he said.

Hard-hit Britain, for example, has chose to delay for as much as 12 weeks - and data from that expansion could help contribute to possible revisions in the World Health Organization recommendation, said World Health Organization spokeswoman Dr. Margaret Harris.

"This is a topic of, of course, active discussion", Tam said this week.

A mass inoculation of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine began today as jabs were delivered to sites across the UK.

British scientists have likewise said the variant found in the United Kingdom -- which has become the dominant type in parts of England - still seems to be susceptible to vaccines.

"WHO's recommendation at present is that the interval between doses may be extended up to 42 days (6 weeks), on the basis of now available clinical trial data", it said, adding: "Should additional data become available on longer intervals between doses, revision of this recommendation will be considered".

Trudeau also says the Canadian Armed Forces approved a request Thursday to help Fort Albany First Nation in Ontario respond to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Viruses have the opportunity to change through mutations that arise naturally as they replicate and circulate in their hosts.

Any remaining doses - the hospital didn't say how many - will be used for long-term care residents "as a priority", and for the health-care workers and other caregivers who were vaccinated last month but require their second doses within the 21-28 day period recommended by the manufacturer.

No vaccine is 100% effective.

The figure is a new record for daily infections, even factoring in 450 cases from Toronto belatedly included in Friday's data. The government is also concerned by the presence of a new variant of the virus.

Ontario hospitals have been told to brace for patient transfers from outside their regions as COVID-19 hospitalizations rise.
