OTTAWA, O.N. – Health Canada has approved the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for use in Canada.
The Moderna vaccine is seen as a critical step in making sure as many Canadians as possible are vaccinated since it doesn’t require a temperature of -70C during storage and transportation.
The different storage and handling requirements of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine mean that it can be distributed to isolated and remote communities, including the territories.
Dr. Henry has said the Moderna vaccine would help B.C. run vaccination clinics in remote and northern parts of the Province.
The vaccine is indicated for use in people 18 years of age or older. Moderna is currently conducting additional studies in children from 12 years of age and older, and this indication could be revised in the future to include children if the data from these studies support it.
Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada will closely monitor the safety of the vaccine once it is on the market and will not hesitate to take action if any safety concerns are identified.
