Health Canada renamed all the vaccines and we’re all confused about their name choices

In case you missed it, Health Canada renamed the three vaccines and the names are a bit interesting, to say the least. The name change was because all three are now fully approved by Health Canada. And yes, some legitimate worries were brought up about what this does to the public perception of the vaccines. But, some tweets about it were absolutely hilarious. With names as weird as Comirnaty, SpikeVax, and Vaxzevria, it’s hard not to crack wise about them.
