Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Uncertainty lingers as Pfizer awaits Health Canada’s vaccine approval for kids” – below is their description.

Health Canada is now considering Pfizer’s request to approve its COVID-19 vaccine for use on children aged 5 to 11.

But confusion remains on how vaccinations will look like for younger children – from the logistics of the vaccine rollout, to what dosage levels will be needed.

For instance, though the dosage for kids is one-third of the adult dose, one of the biggest questions right now is whether kids be given a smaller dosage of the same adult vaccine.

Abigail Bimman looks at those lingering concerns.
