  A look at the latest COVID-19 developments in Canada A look at the latest COVID-19 news in Canada: — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says that while he supports measures to encourage vaccination, he needs more details before taking a stance on Quebec's controversial plan to tax people who refuse a COVID-19 shot. Trudeau applauded efforts in general by the provinces to encourage vaccination and emphasized his government's measures promoting vaccination against COVID-19, including making vaccination mandatory for air and train travel. On Tuesday, Quebec Premier François Legault said he plans to make the unvaccinated pay a "significant" financial penalty.

Après le feu vert des régulateurs, de nombreux pays en Europe et dans le monde ont choisi de faire vacciner les enfants.

LP / Virginie Wéber Sweden, which has often been against the countercurrent during the pandemic in its strategy against COVID, has again made a reverse decision from many European countries. The Nordic country has chosen not to recommend vaccination of 5-11 years against COVID-19, announced on Thursday the health authorities. Only vaccination of children at risk is suggested. "The vaccines are safe, they are very good vaccines, but we focus on the child's medical benefits individually and we do not consider that the benefits are large enough to recommend vaccination of the whole group," said Britta Björklund, responsible for the file to the Swedish Public Health Authority. "We do not feel that you want to vaccinate a whole group of children on behalf of the company. We want a clear profit for the children themselves and that's why we do not recommend it for the moment, "said the health manager. This position can be re-evaluated "vaccinating a group as many is an important medical operation and we think there must be a clear benefit for the child individually," she continued. This position may, however, be re-evaluated according to the health developments, according to the authorities. After the green light of the regulators, many countries in Europe and around the world have chosen to vaccinate children from 5 to 11 years old. France has taken the step on December 15th , but the vaccination campaign of this age group has experienced a very slow start , clashing the opposition of many parents in particular.
