NYT, November 19, 2021: Canada approved the use of Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccinefor children ages 5 to 11 on Friday, adding more than 2.8 million young people to those eligible for a shot.
Some provinces, including Ontario and Saskatchewan, have already announced plans to start scheduling appointments for young children as soon as the doses arrive. Canada’s first order — enough for all eligible children to receive one dose — is expected to begin arriving on Sunday, Filomena Tassi, Canada’s minister of public services and procurement, said at a news conference. She added that the government was working with Pfizer on a second order.
(While the first cases they report in the video may predate this by a week or so, one wonders if they didn’t test a number of children before official approval was given)
