Johnson and Johnson vaccine against COVID-19 has been approved by Health Canada after the evidence showing the vaccine is both safe and effective against the novel coronavirus that causes the disease.

This vaccine that Canada purchased requires only one dose and is the 4th vaccine to be approved in Canada.

Canada already pre-purchased 10 million doses and also has an option to buy another 28 million.

The vaccine has been approved for use in adults over the age of 18 and under clinical trials to see if it will be safe for children.
