Health Canada has approved a second COVID-19 vaccine for use in Canada.

Up to 168,000 of the drug developed by US biotech firm Moderna are due to arrive in Canada before the end of the month.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said deliveries could begin within 48 hours of approval.

The vaccine approval follows the greenlighting of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine on December 9th.

Moderna anticipates starting shipments to Canada within the next 48 hours.

Up to 168,000 doses are set to arrive by the end of December, and two million by the end of March.
