Looks like a bunch of us idiots who did a smart thing and got the crappy vaccine that isn’t all that crappy, actually are going to be able to get the other half of our treatment without having to try out something that sounds kind of reckless even if it might ultimately work. This is good news. It would have been a crime (murder, most likely) to have let all of those doses go to waste. Clearly my words made an impact.
Ontario is resuming use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19 but only as a second dose.
The province’s chief medical officer says health risks posed by the vaccine are low.
The province says new data indicate the benefits far outweigh the risk with second doses.
Ontario has tens of thousands of doses of the vaccine set to expire at the end of the month.
