In the span of about two weeks and after thousands of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine had been administered, the federal Liberal government has spun in circles on safety advice. Watch this debacle (with date stamps) to see how badly the Liberals have botched this issue. pic.twitter.com/hM4i99Thwz

The Canadian National Health Advisory Committee is now officially recommending provinces cease administering the AstraZeneca vaccine to individuals under the age of 55, following reports that they were about to issue that advice.
The vice-chair of NACI said there was “substantial uncertainty” regarding cases of the AstraZeneca causing blood clots.
The US has not yet approved the AstraZeneca vaccine for use there, but the Trudeau government still sought shipments of the vaccine to Canada just the same.
The European Union health regulator has been unable to clearly rule-out a link between the vaccine and rare cases of blood clots.

The government rebuttal is very much in the language of both Obama and Trudeau. They attempt the defence of they didn’t know. In this case, the government claims they cannot predict the future, but all policies in place are based on their predictions of the future.
