It’s T-Day: Nightclubs are preparing to reopen their nightclubs this Friday evening after being closed for about 16 months, but a strict health regulation imposed by the government is finally preventing most people from resuming their operations.

To enter, Covid you need a Health Pass: Complete vaccination for at least 14 days, a negative PCR or antigen test less than 48 hours or proof of Covid contamination fifteen days before six months. The mask is highly recommended, but not mandatory for clients.

Pfizer recommends a 3rd dose against the delta variant

At a time when the highly contagious delta variety is causing epidemics in Asia and Africa and increasing the number of cases in Europe and the United States, Pfizer / Bioentech recommends a third dose of its vaccine to increase its effectiveness.

Preliminary research data show that a booster dose given 6 months after the second dose has a consistent safety profile against the virus, which appeared in South Africa, including against the beta variant.

These levels are “5 to 10 times higher” than those seen after the initial two doses.

Both companies have shown good results in the laboratory against their vaccine delta variant, so a third dose can boost immunity against it. Tests are underway to “confirm this hypothesis”.

Tourists who do not enter Canada until “a good time” are not allowed
