Health Canada has approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for youth ages 12 to 17.

This means that they have determined that this vaccine is safe, effective and manufactured to the highest quality, and that it prepares your immune system to fight against COVID-19.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is expected to be up to 95% effective after two doses. In clinical trials the vaccine showed robust antibody response in youth ages 12 to 17.
