With vaccine deliveries totaling 50 million doses by the end of the week, Canada will be able to inoculate three-quarters of all Canadians over the age of 12. According to the military commander managing national vaccine delivery logistics, Krista Brodie, 2.4 million doses of Pfizer will arrive this week and about 1.4 million of Moderna vaccines.
The two shipments will push Canada’s total vaccine deliveries to over 50 million since the start of the vaccine rollout. That is enough to fully vaccinate 75 per cent of eligible people. The government also expects another 18 million doses throughout July. Since Sunday, just over 25.5 million citizens received at least one dose. The country is also very close to hitting 10 million fully vaccinated individuals.
