Global National: Dec. 3, 2021 | Ottawa signs deal for COVID-19 antiviral pill, Omicron concerns rise

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) is now strongly recommending Canadian adults get a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, as Ottawa strikes a deal to buy a new weapon to fight the virus. The federal government has secured orders to buy COVID-19 antiviral medication from pharmaceutical companies Merck and Pfizer. Abigail Bimman reports on the deal, the new national recommendations on who should get a third vaccine dose, and the lingering questions about travel measures.

A new study from the United Kingdom is adding to the evidence that mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccines provides solid protection from the virus. Could the method work against the new Omicron variant? Eric Sorensen looks at the findings.

New evidence suggests the Omicron variant may be more transmissible than the Delta variant, as Norway grapples with a sudden surge of COVID-19 cases. Crystal Goomansingh reports on the single event that the spike is being linked to and how scientists are learning more about the mutation, also known as B.1.1.529.

Although many farm animals perished when floodwaters ravaged parts of British Columbia, farmers say they were still able to save most of their livestock. Mike Drolet looks at how people rallied together to protect their livelihoods.

Plus, Canada is recording surprisingly strong job growth, as Statistics Canada reveals the country’s overall employment is now higher than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic. David Akin explains what sent thousands of Canadians into the job market in November, and how some businesses are still trying to find workers.

And, more vaccines are coming to Canada, but not for humans. Instead, zoos are eagerly awaiting doses of a COVID-19 shots specifically made for animals. As Mike Armstrong explains, American zoos are already inoculating animals against this virus.
