Text on-screen: Dr. Supriya Sharma, Chief Medical Advisor, Health Canada

Dr. Sharma: We have requirements on the manufacturers to continue to monitor these vaccines. We get information from the millions of doses that are being administered internationally, and of course, are following very closely on the vaccines that are being delivered in Canada.

And so, if any issue comes up at all in terms of the safety, we will look at that as quickly as possible and do whatever we need to make sure that these vaccines continue to be as safe and effective as possible.
