Canada’s NACI reaffirms recommendation of 4-month intervals between COVID-19 vaccine doses | FULL

CA, 07 Apr 2021
Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) doubled down on its four-month recommendation between COVID-19 doses on Wednesday, as the country struggles to roll out vaccinations quickly enough to stem the tide of a third wave.

By allowing for these intervals, nine out of 10 adults over 50 years of age and 75 per cent of adults aged 16 to 49 will be able to get their first vaccine by mid-June, according to a summary within NACI’s decision.

Despite the recommendation, NACI officials are still calling for second doses to be offered “as soon as possible” after all eligible populations have been offered first doses.
