According to what the Ministry of Health announced Wednesday, Canada has authorized the use of the Corona vaccine, developed by Moderna, two weeks after it had licensed the Pfizer / Biotech vaccine.
The ministry said that it had determined that the American company Moderna vaccine met its stringent standards for safety, efficacy, and quality.
Early this month, Canada gave the green light to the Pfizer / Biotech vaccine.
According to what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged, the vaccination campaign is supposed to start in Canada in the coming days.
And the United States previously granted an emergency license to use Moderna after it authorized the Pfizer / Biotech vaccine.
