The first Canadian COVID-19 vaccine, Covifenz, was approved for use by Health Canada on Thursday.
The homegrown shot, developed by Quebec-based company Medicago, is also hailed by Health Canada as the first COVID vaccine that uses a plant-based protein technology: plant-derived, virus-like particles that mimic the spike protein of the virus that causes COVID-19 without containing any of its genetic material.
Regulators announced the vaccine would be authorized for adults age 18 to 64, administered in two doses of 3.75 micrograms, 21 days apart.
Clinical trials, which involved 30,000 participants, found Medicago’s Covifenz to be 71 per cent effective against symptomatic COVID infection and 100 per cent effective against severe disease, according to the biopharmaceutical company.
