From allergies to mercury misinformation: Your COVID-19 vaccine questions answered
TORONTO -- The first sign of an end to the coronavirus pandemic is here as vaccines circulate around the country, but much remains unclear.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was the first to circulate among priority groups, but won't be the last. While Health Canada could be close to approving additional coronavirus shots for use in Canada, whether they will mean a return to normal remains to be seen. Meanwhile, the latest federal modelling data suggests the second wave of the pandemic could get worse long before most of the country is vaccinated.
