Trudeau Has Responded As More & More Countries Suspend The AstraZeneca Vaccine

"The best vaccine for you is the first one offered to you."💉🇨🇦

Speaking during a press conference on Monday, March 15, Justin Trudeau addressed concerns about the AstraZeneca vaccine in Canada.

He was asked about the vaccine as multiple countries — including Germany, France, Denmark, Thailand, and the Netherlands — have temporarily suspended its use following reports of blood clots in some recipients post-vaccine.

Despite this, Trudeau reassured Canadians that the vaccine was both safe and effective, repeating Health Canada’s message that none of the vaccine batches under review were shipped to Canada.

“We're encouraging everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” he said, in French. “To say it simply, the best vaccine for you is the first one offered to you."

"That's the one you should take, because that is how we are going to end this pandemic as quickly and safely as possible,” the PM added.
