Ottawa announced Canada is scheduled to get two million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine later this week. This helps provinces as they are trying to expand their vaccine rollouts to immunize more people.
Moderna delivered a shipment of one million doses last week ahead of schedule. As a result, the shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech will be the only vaccine Canada receives this week. The next import of Moderna vaccines is scheduled for next week, as the federal government said they will not get any more vaccines from Oxford-AstraZeneca or Johnson and Johnson.
The arrival of the vaccine assists provinces in Canada that are soon to expand the eligibility to receive one. British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec are among those provinces and it is due to Pfizer-BioNTech’s steady supply. They are scheduled to send Canada 2 million doses every week in May and then increase to 2.4 million doses per week in June.
