Although, the non-replicating viral vector COVID-19 vaccines (AstraZeneca & J&J) are likely to no longer to be given in Canada, those who received them should not have regret, they are very good vaccines with high efficacy in trials. 

The rare serious side effect which could cause death is too high risk in Canada.
