IQALUIT, Nunavut — Nunavut is looking to get the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine once it is available in Canada.
The territory’s chief public health officer, Dr. Michael Patterson, says Moderna’s vaccine is preferred because the Pfizer one requires cold storage and shipping that would be too difficult in Nunavut.
Patterson says Iqaluit is the only community where it would be possible to store the Pfizer vaccine.
The territory’s rapid outbreak of COVID-19 continues to shrink.
