    Canada’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Theresa Tam, along with Dr. Howard Njoo, the deputy chief medical officer of health, will be providing a COVID-19 update Wednesday morning.

    Since countries have started rolling out COVID-19 vaccines, more women than men have reported side effects, such as blood clots and allergic reactions, and according to experts, this is not surprising. If anything, it shows the shot is working.

    Whether mild or severe, data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has shown that women are bearing the brunt of vaccine reactions, and experts believe it may be due to estrogen.

    “In terms of just general side effects [of vaccines], women do seem to have a stronger response than men,” Stephen Hoption Cann, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of British Columbia, said. “If you do have a strong reaction to the vaccine, that’s generally a sign that your body’s building a much stronger immune response and you’ll probably get more protection from it because of that.“

    As of Tuesday, newly confirmed COVID-19 cases reported by the provinces have brought the national total to over 1,139,000 cases and more than 23,700 deaths. Over 1,027,000 people have recovered, leaving over 87,000 active cases across the country.
