Ontario Premier Doug Ford received an AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 on Friday in an effort to reduce vaccine hesitancy, according to CP24.
Health Minister Christine Elliott also received a shot of the AstraZeneca vaccine last week.
The AstraZeneca vaccine especially has raised flags in Canada and across the world after concerns about it causing rare and serious blood clots.
In Canada, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommended that the distribution of AstraZeneca's COVID vaccine be halted for those over 55.
A recent poll showed that vaccine hesitancy for the AstraZeneca shot was common among Canadian citizens.
In a poll conducted by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies, just 53 percent of poll takers would opt to receive or have a family member receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, far less than other vaccines for coronavirus. The poll asked 1,523 adult Canadians about whether they would take that vaccine or not.
