The recent tuberculosis vaccine recall has left Health Canada scrambling for an alternative.

It’s reaching out to fie manufacturers outside of Canada that make the vaccine.

According to the Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, efforts are underway to speed up the approval process to make the vaccine available as soon as possible.

It’s unknown how long it will take, but Aglukkaq says the progress is being made.
