Canada won’t cancel Johnson & Johnson vaccine contract despite safety concerns: Anand


Canada will not cancel its contract for millions of doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine unless it is advised by Health Canada that the shot is unsafe, the federal procurement minister said Wednesday. Asked at a House of Commons committee meeting if the contract should be cancelled due to reports of blood clots after inoculation in the United States, Anita Anand said there was no reason to do so unless the health regulator says otherwise. “Health Canada has deemed both J&J and AstraZeneca — and Pfizer and Moderna — safe and effective, and as a result we will continue with our procurements of these vaccines,” she said.
