More vaccines are coming to Canada, but not for humans. Instead, zoos are eagerly awaiting doses of a COVID-19 specifically made for animals.

Pharmaceutical company Zoetis, based in the United States, has developed a vaccine specifically for animals. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has approved it for emergency use and the company is donating 900 doses, which should ship in the coming days.

As Mike Armstrong explains, American zoos are already inoculating animals against this virus.
