Covid Shots can be needed Canada says Booster Shots

On Friday, Canada stated it may be necessary to booster COVID-19 injections, but no request was submitted by Pfizer to allow the shooting, which is now being considered in health authorities for a two dosage protection period.

Pfizer and BioNTech want to request that US and EU regulatory authorities approve, within weeks, a booster dosage of their vaccine COVID-19 on the basis of evidence of increased infection risk, and of the spread of highly infectious Delta variants, six months after inoculation.

The Canadian public health ministry stated in a statement: "The emerging data to date suggest excellent protection among most persons up to 9 months after they have received 2 doses of vaccines."

"It is possible that after the present roll-out we have attained acceptable levels of community protection, people in Canada will require a second vaccine and booster injection... The necessity for future booster doses is constantly evaluated, given the development of variations of concern," the ministry stated.

If a booster is sent to Canada, it will "assess the information submitted."

In recent months in the midst of lockdowns and as the number of immunizations in Canada decreased drastically. Now, or is in process of doing, the provinces have reopened for business.

The current figures indicate that over 78.5% of persons 12 years of age or older got at least 1 dose of COVID-19 and 46% are completely vaccinated in Canada.
