CDC: Children aged 12+ can get COVID-19 shot with other vaccines

Trudeau Canada’s Trudeau says he discussed border with Biden, but no deal By Reuters

According to the DGHS, almost 4.26 million people have received both the doses of the vaccine, while more than 1.55 million people have received only the first dose.

Both Pfizer and Moderna are now conducting vaccine trials in children as young as six months old, and Freeman estimates some children younger than age 12 will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine as early as this fall.

LeBlanc says Canadians can expect information within days on how the federal government intends to re-open the Canadian border to global travel.

Besides, 7,72,40,865 and 12193878 beneficiaries in the 45 to 60 age group have been administered the first and second dose respectively, while 6,32,64,880 and 20268,057 beneficiaries above 60 years have taken the first and second dose respectively.

The ministry said 21,98,144 beneficiaries were vaccinated for the first dose and 3,70,714 beneficiaries received the second dose of vaccine. Some smaller nations, like Malta and Gibraltar, have higher first dose rates than Canada.

As of Wednesday, June 23, people in Delta variant hotspot regions who received their first dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines on or before May 30 will be eligible to book an accelerated second dose appointment.

It can be recalled that Nigeria received about 4 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine from the COVAX initiative out of the expected 16 million doses.

Peel's top doctor has pressed the Ford government to earmark more second doses to high-risk communities. "We have a narrow window of opportunity to get ahead of this virus".

On Tuesday, the provincial health officer reported no COVID-19 deaths and 108 new cases of the disease.

In Waterloo Region, over 71 per cent of adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Quebec, British Columbia and New Brunswick are the only provinces already above the 75 per cent marker for first doses among eligible people.

France is shortening the gap between first and second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 jabs to ensure that people get fully vaccinated quickly and do not defer a second jab due to summer holidays.
