Coronavirus vaccine approved by Health Canada

Canada becomes the third country in the world to officially authorize a coronavirus vaccine. After struggling with the virus for almost an entire year, it seems that Canada has finally reached the ending line. Raising one’s hopes too high at the moment might be considered hasty, but struggling Canadians cannot help but rejoice.

Health Canada issued the approval on December 9, 2020. This COVID-19 vaccine was developed and is being manufactured by Pfizer and BioNTech Manufacturing. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced via Twitter that the vaccine could make its way into the country by December 14 at the earliest.

The estimation is that Canada will receive more than 240,000 doses by December 31. This will be followed by the arrival of a few million more vaccines in early 2021. 

What next?

Since coronavirus has proved ruthless in its effort to not spare anybody, Canada is preparing to launch the biggest vaccination drive in the entire medical history of the country.

Health Canada asserted that the vaccine was approved because it was proven to be safe, high-quality, and effective. However, there are certain terms and conditions attached to the approval, and Pfizer and BioNTech Manufacturing should be mindful. They have to provide:

  • Safety monitoring reports on possible side effects every month
  • Data proving that their quality control is impeccable for every single vaccine 
  • Reports on the effectiveness and safety of the drug through proper data
