Also a big thanks to my number 1 fan @OttawaMusicBus, for taking some amazing home video of my hits. Personally, I think the dog filter made my skin look smoother than the makeup I put on!

As always with NACI, there are many caveats. For folks 18-29, they are recommending people only get Pfizer, not Moderna, citing lower myocarditis rates with Pfizer. For people 30+, you can get either Pfizer or Moderna. #cdnpoli

For those wondering what NACI might recommend, we know that NACI usually gives provinces a few days heads up on changes to their recommendations. Some provinces, like Ontario with AZ changes, implemented recommendations before NACI went public. #cdnpoli
