Canada expects that coronavirus vaccines may appear as early as the first months of 2021, but vaccinations will begin only after the drugs are approved by the Maple Leaf Country's medical department.
This was stated by the representative of the Ministry of Health of Canada Teresa Tam.
вЂњI am cautiously optimistic that safe and effective vaccines will be available in the first quarter of 2021,вЂќ she said.
Recall, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, during a speech in parliament, said that citizens will receive a coronavirus vaccine for free after it is created and tested.
The Canadian government has already signed contracts with companies such as AstraZeneca, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, Sanofi and GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) to supply the vaccine, he said.
We will also remind that the head of the task force of the British government on vaccines Keith Bingham said that the UK authorities will not vaccinate children and young people against coronavirus. People over 50 will receive the vaccine first.
