Health Canada and the vaccines manufacturers updated the names of the COVID-19 vaccines. So Pfizer’s new name is Comirnaty, Moderna is Spikevax, and AstraZeneca is Vaxzevria. Both Pfizer/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax are mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) vaccines. At the same time, AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria is a vaccine that is based on a modified adenovirus that is similar to the viruses causing colds or flu.
If you didn’t get any dose of your vaccine, Chaparral Pharmacy offers Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for first, second, and booster shots for all Albertans.
