Canada could get Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine shipment in June, officials say | FULL

by News Update

During a COVID-19 press conference on Friday, Joelle Paquette, director-general responsible for vaccine procurement at Public Services and Procurement, Canada, announced that the country will receive a shipment of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines by the end of June, but “further detail will be provided once we solidify that.”

It is unclear at this point if the shipment will come from the same U.S. plant that delivered the first batch of 310,000 Johnson & Johnson shots to Canada that were held back due to quality control issues.

“We have the 310,000 [doses] that came earlier, that are still on hold pending health Canada approval. They [U.S.] have advised that they will have a shipment at the end of this month,” Paquette said.

Brig.-Gen. Krista Brodie, head of Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout, also announced that vaccine deliveries to the territories would be completed this week.

“The Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon will have the vaccine supply needed to fully vaccinate their eligible population 12 years of age and up,” she stated.

Thanks to Public Health! You have a tough job to do and your efforts are much under appreciated.

with only 1 in 100 people expected to see a reduction in symptoms, surely there might be some small benefit if you jab enough people and totally ignore any potential long term adverse effects.

Do we disobey God and give into the fear and trust in what man says will keep us safe?
The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me?
Psalm 118:6

Jesus The Son of God said:
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
Matthew 16:25

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

I can't listen to this Can. Update because of the overlap of the translator and the Ministers speaking, it's awful and very hard to decipher.

Who writes these titles? We didn't use the J&J we already have. Getting more this month was like the 10th most relevant topic they discussed today. Can't even do clickbait right
