Canada has approved Moderna’s novel coronavirus vaccine, and Health Canada’s chief advisor says the country will receive up to 168,000 doses before the end of December.
The vaccine is a two-dose series given approximately one month apart through a muscle injection. The doses inject a molecule called mRNA, which includes instructions for the body on how to produce antibodies to fight the virus.
Moderna’s vaccine is more widely available than Pfizer’s vaccine, and can be stored in regular freezers.
Mike Le Couteur has more on how the rollout will differ from the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine.
