Winnipeg Zoo Animals Get COVID-19 Vaccine

Zoo Animals Vaccinated

WINNIPEG - The Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg has started vaccinating some of its animals against COVID-19.

Zoo officials say the vaccine was made specifically for animals by Zoetis, a US company that specializes in animal health.

The zoo is expecting to vaccinate 55 animals including primates and big cats.

No animals at the zoo have come down with COVID but that's not the case elsewhere so this is seen as a preventative measure.
