Officials with Health Canada are expected to hold a technical briefing on COVID-19 vaccines in Canada and other public health concerns at 11:30 a.m. EDT.
The specifics of what Canadian officials will discuss are not yet clear, but the United States government approved updated COVID-19 vaccines Monday in a bid to bolster protection against the latest coronavirus strains and soften any surges this fall and winter.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration isn’t calling those a booster, but rather an updated vaccine.
CTVNews.ca will carry the Canadian briefing live.
