OTTAWA, ON – Canada has another COVID-19 vaccine as part of its arsenal.

Health Canada is giving the green light to Johnson & Johnson’s single dose vaccine.

The federal regulator says it has determined the single dose vaccine is safe and effective against the virus that causes COVID-19.

It’s the fourth vaccine to be approved in Canada and the first and only one the country has purchased that requires just a single dose.
