With winter coming and flu season around the corner this is welcome news for parents.
NEW: Pfizer and BioNTech say they've filed with Health Canada for approval of their COVID vaccine for kids aged 5 to 11, meaning the ball is now in the federal regulator's court and the country is one step closer to a shot for school aged children. thestar.com/news/canada/2021…
