Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: March 1 | AstraZeneca vaccine not recommended for Canadians over age 65” – below is their description.

On tonight’s top story: There are contradictions among health officials about whether the newly approved Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine should be given to people 65 and older. Abigail Bimman reports on the confusion, as provinces expand vaccination efforts.

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require two doses. Amid promising new data, British Columbia health officials say they will now administer doses 16 weeks apart, instead of three to four weeks. Robin Gill reports on the plan.

Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan only includes adults, so when can children and teens get the shot? Heather Yourex-West explains why vaccine approval for younger Canadians is taking so long, and how it will impact herd immunity.

After receiving approval in the U.S., four million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot COVID-19 vaccine are now shipping across America. Jackson Proskow explains when Canada may approve Johnson & Johnson’s shot, and how it stands up to the more contagious variants.

As a new, tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan prepares to air March 7 on Global TV, Prince Philip has moved to another hospital specializing in cardiac care. As Crystal Goomansingh reports, this is the Duke of Edinburgh’s longest hospital stay yet.
