The province needs to act quickly to avoid losses.
300,000 of the doses received due to the vaccine expiration date must be given by April 2nd.
About 950,000 doses will arrive in the country this week, including those from Pfizer.
It remains to be seen to whom this new dose will be given. The Immunization Advisory Committee recommended that the elderly not be given the estrogen vaccine.
He said there was insufficient data on the effects of the vaccine on people 65 years of age and older.
However, Health Canada recommends an estrogen product for all ages from 18 years of age.
According to epidemiologist Gaston de Ceres, we should not be capricious when it comes to vaccinations.
“Between having an estrogen vaccine or not being vaccinated, it is better to have an estrogen vaccine. It’s very effective in preventing serious problems, “said Gaston de Ceres.
