Canada approves J&J’s one-dose COVID-19 vaccine

Canada’s drug regulator, Health Canada, has approved Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, the fourth such vaccine to be given the green light, a government source said on Friday.

Health Canada approved the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Inc vaccines in December, and AstraZeneca’s vaccine in February.

If the J&J vaccine has been approved, it could ease some logistical challenges. The vaccine is administered in a single dose and can be stored in normal fridges while the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna shots must be kept in freezers.
