Coronavirus: Canada approves Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine label change to 6 doses

Health Canada on Tuesday authorized a label change to Pfizer–BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine that will allow six doses of the precious drug to be extracted per vial.

Up until now, Canada has been extracting five doses from a single vial of the vaccine.

The pharmaceutical company recently pushed Health Canada to amend the label information on vials in Canada, as it did with the U.S. and Europe. The change will help Pfizer fulfill its contract to ship four million doses of its vaccine to Canada by March — but by sending fewer vials.

Abigail Bimman has more on the change, and why at least one province isn’t happy about it.
