Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau along with Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Theresa Tam will be providing an update into the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday morning.

On Thursday, Dr. Howard Njoo, Canada’s deputy chief public health officer, said that “it’s possible” Canada could see vaccine dose mixing in its future.

“It’s possible, but at the present time, I would say that Health Canada is looking at the data that they’ll certainly take that into account in terms of what is best in the Canadian context,” he said at a virtual news conference.

Canada so far has four vaccines in its arsenal, two of which are mRNA vaccines.

The NACI has recommended that provinces and territories wait up to four months to administer the second dose to people in order to optimize vaccine rollout and offer more people protection from an effective vaccine sooner.

To date, Canada has had 1,036,028 confirmed COVID-19 cases with

948,388 of those recovered. 23,211 Canadians have succumbed to the novel coronavirus.
