FIVE THINGS TO KNOW
 
1
  Second dose delay
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization is standing by its recommendation to delay second doses of two-shot COVID-19 vaccines by up to four months.
 
2
  Children and vaccines
Experts say it is impossible to achieve herd immunity without vaccinating Canada's population aged 19 years and younger, which is why vaccine companies' clinical trials on children are so vital.
 
3
  Cancer patients
Oncologists are ringing the alarm bell over the prevailing policy of delaying the second dose of the vaccine for up to four months, saying this strategy could leave cancer patients unprotected.
 
4
  Gum disease
An international study led by researchers at McGill University has found that those with poor dental hygiene tend to experience more severe COVID-19 symptoms.
 
5
  Ketchup supply
Heinz Ketchup and French's Ketchup are not experiencing product shortages in Canada as spikes in takeout orders are making ketchup tough to come by across the border.
