Children account for most new COVID-19 cases in Canada

Global News in Canada shows that federal modelling shows new COVID-19 cases among children aged five to 11 are the highest among all age groups in Canada. 

They still aren't eligible for a vaccine, and there's no telling how soon protection for young kids will be available. Abigail Bimman reports on the warnings ahead of flu season.

  1. It seems that Canada could authorize vaccine for kids 5-11 in '1 to 2 weeks.' Health Canada says a decision on whether to authorize a COVID-19 vaccine for children will come "in the next one to two weeks," leaving open the possibility that some kids could be at least partially protected by Christmas.

    Parts of Canada see more virus cases in the weeks leading up to the holiday season.

    A final decision is expected in the next one to two weeks.
