COVID-19: Ontario health minister outlines rollout of vaccine for kids aged 5-11 | LIVE
CA, 22 Nov 2021
Ontario Deputy Premier and Health Minister Christine Elliott alongside Solicitor General Sylvia Jones is expected to outline the province's plan for the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11.
The first batch of COVID-19 vaccines for children arrived in Canada on Sunday, marking the first in an accelerated shipment of vaccines.
Health Canada announced Friday that it had approved a modified version of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for use in that demographic and Ottawa immediately promised some shots would be on Canadian soil 48 hours later.
Health Canada's approval came after a month-long review of safety and efficacy data from the pharmaceutical giants.
