Health Canada approves use of AstraZeneca vaccine

Health Canada has accepted use of the COVID-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca this morning, clearing the best way for hundreds of thousands of extra inoculations in Canada.

Canada’s regulatory consultants had been assessing the submission from AstraZeneca and Oxford University for security and efficacy since October, and introduced their approval this morning.

“AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine is indicated for active immunization of individuals 18 years of age and older for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019,” reads their website.

Canada has secured entry to twenty million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
