  • Pfizer, Moderna vaccines now preferred second dose for AstraZeneca recipients: NACI

"In this context, the priority of the vaccination teams is to ensure that the doses of Pfizer are in sufficient quantity to continue the vaccination activities already planned and to honour the appointments made", the statement read.

A key federal advisory committee is no longer recommending that Canadians receive a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Alexandra Hilkene, a spokesperson for Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott, said AstraZeneca vaccine is now available for those who wish to receive it as a second dose, with informed consent, through select pharmacy and primary care channels.

The announcement caused some confusion among vaccine recipients, including those who had recently received their second dose of AstraZeneca, though officials stressed that the vaccine remains safe and effective.

"We still know from the information that we're seeing here in B.C., but also primarily in the United Kingdom, where a lot of AstraZeneca has been used, that vaccine effectiveness is very good for both AstraZeneca and the mRNA vaccines", she said at a news conference.

Quebec was not moving to follow NACI's advice. Health Minister Christian Dubé, who got two doses of AstraZeneca himself, said Quebec is still saying people can opt for a mixed schedule or two doses of AstraZeneca, depending on their personal choice.

More than 2.5 million people are fully vaccinated with double doses. "If you got two doses of AstraZeneca, you can rest assured you got a safe vaccine".

The premier received his first shot of AstraZeneca in the middle of April, as health officials were in the process of reviewing the vaccine's link to very rare blood clots, and offered a similar message encouraging people to join B.C.'s immunization effort at the earliest opportunity.

There are no further shipments of AstraZeneca now scheduled, but there are about 600,000 doses still left from previous deliveries.

It comes less than a week after Canada promised to donate 13 million doses to the COVAX vaccine-sharing alliance, which will entirely come from the remaining share of doses Canada had purchased from COVAX itself. "We don't know that definitively, and we may not know that for some time".
