Why doesn't Canada recognize the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine? [closed]
According to cbc.ca:
The government of Canada's website lists which vaccines are recognized
for the purposes of travel — Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna,
AstraZeneca-Oxford, and Johnson and Johnson — and which products
aren't sufficient for waiving quarantine requirements, including
Sinopharm and the Russian Sputnik V shots.
Why won't Canada accept the Chinese Sinopharm or Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccines? The Sinovac vaccine is recognized by several European countries, so it seems odd that some countries have yet to recognize them and why they approved American vaccines before any other vaccines.
