It's pronounced koh-MIHR'-nuh-tee. Never heard of it? It's what Canada will be calling the Pfizer vaccine from now on, at least officially. Canada has approved new names for Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines. Excited?

1. The Pfizer vaccine has been dubbed Comirnaty, which the company says represents a combination of the terms COVID-19, mRNA, community, and immunity. Comments?

It is instantly forgettable.
