With just over 3-million doses of COVID-19 vaccines arriving in the country this week alone, Canada will have received about 9.5-million from Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca by the end of the week.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Pfizer’s agreed to move up delivery of 5-million doses from late summer to June, raising the number by the end of the month to 18-million.
Procurement Minister Anita Anand says Pfizer will deliver at least 1-million doses every week from now until the end of May and at least 2-million per week each week in June.
According to Anand the country is on track to get about 44-million doses in total by the end of June, means all Canadians who want a shot should be able to get one by the end of summer.
And that’s without the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the first shipment of which the government says will arrive at the end of April.
