Health Canada approves Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine

Health Canada is giving the green light to Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The federal regulator says it has determined the single dose vaccine is safe and effective against the virus that causes COVID-19.

It’s the fourth vaccine to be approved in Canada and the first and only one the country has purchased that requires just a single dose.

They say it doesn’t have any specific storage requirements.

Canada has pre-purchased 10 million doses which are expected to arrive by September, with options to buy another 28 million.
