If You Wonder If You Got the Right Vaccine
Canada has pledged to donate 100 million doses of Covid vaccine but notice what is conspicuous by their absence.The specific breakdown of the pledge was finally released Sunday by the prime minister's office. Much of the goal — 87 million doses — has already been paid for through the ACT-Accelerator, the global collaborative effort to develop and share COVID-19 vaccines.
Canada will donate an additional 13 million doses out of its planned surplus supply.
The majority of it (7.3 million doses) will be the Novavax vaccine, which has not yet been approved by Health Canada. There will be 4.3 million doses from the AstraZeneca-Oxford supply and 1.3 million from the Johnson & Johnson stream.
Novavax, check. AstraZenica, check. Johnson & Johnson, check.
Apparently we're not feeling all that generous when it comes to the mRNA vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna. But wait, they're all the same, aren't they?
