Manitoba announces Fall vaccine campaign

The Manitoba government has announced its plans to have a Fall vaccine campaign despite the increasing irrelevance of COVID-19.

While speaking on vaccine eligibility and who should get a second booster shot, Manitoba Chief Provincial Public Health Officer Brent Roussin said it might be worth delaying getting the fourth jab until the province kicks off their Fall vaccination campaign with a brand-spankin’ new bivalent mRNA jab.

“The other thing that we need to consider is that in early Fall, there’s a real chance that a bivalent vaccine — that we begin our Fall campaign with — that is going to be very likely more effective against the newer variants that we’re dealing with,” said Roussin.

“And because there’s going to be a three-to-six month interval between doses, a large fourth dose campaign right now could potentially delay the receipt of a much, possibly better vaccine in [the] Fall.”

The bivalent vaccine that Roussin is all giddy about was developed by Pfizer. And as if on schedule, Health Canada started reviewing the vaccine yesterday after Pfizer submitted its vaccine data.

“Today, Pfizer Canada and BioNTech filed a New Drug Submission (NDS) with Health Canada for an Omicron-adapted bivalent COVID-19 vaccine candidate, based on the BA.1 sub-lineage, to be administered as a booster dose in individuals 12 years of age and older,” wrote Pfizer in a news release.

“This application follows guidance from Health Canada to work towards the introduction of an Omicron-adapted bivalent vaccine candidate to address the continued evolution of SARS-CoV-2. The safety and efficacy of this NDS is still under investigation, and market authorization has not yet been obtained.”

While worrisome, this development shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise.

Indeed, on June 14, when the Trudeau government reluctantly suspended the travel ban on unvaccinated Canadians, government officials all but outright stated they would bring COVID restrictions back for the Fall season.

“If the situation takes a turn for the worse, we are prepared to bring back the policies necessary to protect Canadians,” said Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, at the time.

And as the Summer stretches on, the day the government brings back COVID tyranny appears to edge ever closer.
