A 40 million dose of the Modena vaccine approved Wednesday by Health Canada, which was purchased by the federal government, will give immunity to more than half of Canadian adults.
Health Canada on Wednesday approved a second vaccine against COVID-19.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that a dose of 168,000 will reach Canada in 48 hours.
“The team is currently working diligently and diligently to achieve this goal,” said Patricia Gautier, Executive Director, Modern Canada.
The vaccine should be in several stages before it reaches the country.
Made in Switzerland, it was packaged in Spain before being shipped to Canada.
Once on Canadian soil, it is transferred to a distribution center before being delivered to provinces and territories.
Modena Canada Director confirms that the vaccine is safe.
“I can tell you that we have worked very closely with Health Canada, it follows very careful rules, it has a very high level of ethics and has followed all the rules that need to be followed,” Ms Gautir explained.
She recalled that 30,000 people participated in the third phase clinical study conducted by the organization.
“So this is a really large-scale study,” said Patricia Gautier.
