Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: More Canadians starting to receive their 3rd vaccine dose” – below is their description.

Provinces are rolling out more COVID-19 booster shots to vaccinated Canadians as the country remains focused on battling the still dominant Delta variant.

Several provinces are adhering to the National Advisory Committee’s October recommendations to offer boosters to anyone aged 70 or older, along with vulnerable groups. But some provinces are already getting ahead, with Ontarians aged 50 and over being able to get theirs starting Dec. 13.

Eric Sorensen reports on what the timelines look like and which provinces are jumping ahead of national guidance as scientists study the Omicron variant.
