COVID-19 vaccine dosing interval could be shortened as more deliveries arrive, Njoo says| FULL

Canada’s deputy chief public health officer Dr. Howard Njoo said Thursday that the time interval between first and second vaccine dose, currently at up to 16 weeks, could be shortened saying they were "on track" to do so but it would be dependent on supply.

Njoo made the comments during an update on the country’s vaccine rollout alongside the newly-appointed head of the vaccine task force Brig.-Gen. Krista Brodie and Joelle Paquette, the director-general of the Procurement Support Services Sector.

Njoo also spoke about the potential reopening of the Canadian border to people being able to enter the country from abroad is likely to not just rely on the COVID-19 vaccine status of people wanting to come in but also on where the pandemic situation is nationwide. He said one question to pose will be whether health officials feel Canadians are well protected and referenced the previous 75 per cent goal of "two-dose coverage."

As COVID-19 vaccinations ramp up across the country, a new study in Canada will now look at the safety and effectiveness of mixing and matching different types of shots.

Some 1,300 adult participants are expected to be enrolled in the clinical trials in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia, investigating the effects of using two different COVID-19 vaccines for the first and second dose.

Over 19 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered to provinces, according to latest updates from Health Canada’s website.
