COVID-19: Uncertainty lingers as Pfizer awaits Health Canada's vaccine approval for kids

Global News in Canada shows that Health Canada is now considering Pfizer's request to approve its COVID-19 vaccine for use on children aged 5 to 11. 

But confusion remains on how vaccinations will look like for younger children - from the logistics of the vaccine rollout, to what dosage levels will be needed.

Abigail Bimman looks at those lingering concerns.
