Canadians vaccinated with AZ vaccine can’t see Springsteen in New York – .

Bruce Springsteen, also known as The Boss, performs a series of Broadway shows in New York City between June and September.
In an interesting development for future Canadian viewers, if you’re vaccinated with AstraZeneca and want to see this show, you’re out of luck.

In an FAQ on the Jujamcyn Theaters website, organizers point out that attendees need proof of vaccination to see “Springsteen On Broadway.” Where things get a bit tricky depends on the vaccine you received.

AstraZeneca as of this publication is not approved by the FDA.

“Under the direction of New York State, only COVID-19 vaccines approved by the FDA (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson) will be accepted as proof of vaccination for ticket holders aged 16 and over,” states the press release on behalf of the theater. .

Ontario health officials were asked about this situation today and whether Canadians fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca simply would be out of luck.

“These conversations are taking place as we speak, and we will ensure that people in Ontario and Canada who have received an AstraZeneca approved by Health Canada, NACI, have the same rights as people who have received other vaccines, ”said Ontario Solicitor General Sylvia Jones.

Jones also advised people not to be revaccinated with a different vaccine just to see The Boss.

Along with a long list of accolades, Springsteen has won 20 Grammy Awards.
