Canada has given full approval of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson for people aged 18 and older, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

By doing so, Canada has become the first country in the world to give a complete green light to the single-dose shot.

"We are delighted by Health Canada's decision to approve the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine based on Phase 3 clinical data that proves the vaccine's robust safety and efficacy," global head of the company's Research & Development team, Mathai Mammen, commented.
