Moderna, Pfizer COVID Vaccines Now Interchangeable

'Lead from the front': PM defends why she's waited to get her vaccine

The White House announced last week that Pfizer shots would be among the first tranche of 25 million doses going to countries and regions across the world.

It's the first time the United States is sending doses of Moderna's vaccine. Pfizer and its development partner BioNTech have boasted in recent weeks that they are vastly expanding manufacturing capabilities and expect to deliver billions of doses within the next few years.

Anyone eligible for a first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can book through the online provincial booking system.

Psaki on Thursday said Trump administration officials had "abused their power" and that Biden was looking to turn the page. But the department's ability to obtain those records under certain circumstances remained intact.

The region's top doctor continues: "The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are almost identical in all aspects and NACI has said that there is no reason to believe that providing a different mRNA vaccine for a second dose would result in any additional safety issues or less protection".

"Millions of more doses arriving prior to the end of June and into the summer months, [and] based on confirmed deliveries alone, Canada is set to receive at least 55-million doses by the end of July", Anand added. Frank Anthony yesterday announced that the government has purchased some 100,000 doses of the Chinese Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine.

"To be clear, that is the minimum number of doses were anticipate to receive within that timeframe".
