In the case of Moderna's vaccine, the established interval is between 21 and 28 days. "We use that information along with our supply to try and get a nice safe and effective way of providing as much immunization as we can to high risk groups during a safe and effective period".

THE FIRST BATCH of the Moderna vaccine for Covid-19 has arrived into Ireland.

The Moderna dose, which will be the second vaccine to enter Ireland's rollout programme, landed at Dublin airport this afternoon on an Aer Lingus flight.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is administered to a personal support worker at the Ottawa Hospital, on December 15, 2020. Henry says new shipments are expected by Thursday.

By delivering one dose only, the province hopes to immunize a greater number of people more quickly.

Moderna - the company that created one of the two COVID-19 vaccines that were approved late previous year by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for emergency use - said on Monday that it will pursue the development of three new vaccines: one for the seasonal flu, one for HIV, and one for Nipah virus using mRNA technology, according to a news release.

"We're on track to having every Canadian who wants a vaccine receive one by September", said Trudeau, adding that the federal government has let all provinces and territories know how many vaccines they will be receiving every week from now until the end of February.

Trudeau told reporters that Ottawa now had agreements with Pfizer, which developed its vaccine with German partner BioNTech, and Moderna Inc for a total of 80 million doses of their COVID-19 vaccines to be delivered this year.
