Canada on Track to Get Almost 1 Million Vaccines This Week and Next Week

Nearly one million doses of coveted coronavirus vaccines are heading for Canada this week, with another round of roughly 900,000 doses expected to arrive next week, say public health officials.

The news comes as officials confirmed doses of the newly approved AstraZeneca vaccine are currently en route to Canada and are on track to be delivered on Wednesday.

Procurement Minister Anita Anand said during a press conference with public health officials on Tuesday that vaccine deliveries are ramping up and will continue to do so, keeping the country on track for the government’s promise that everyone who wants a vaccine can get one by “the end of the summer.”

Anand said Canada will receive 945,000 doses of vaccines this week: a weekly shipment of 444,000 doses from Pfizer and 500,000 doses of the just-approved AstraZeneca/CoviShield vaccine.

CoviShield is the name of the AstraZeneca vaccine being manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.

The shipments come as regions across the country see what chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam describes as “moderate increases” in coronavirus cases, along with rising cases of more contagious variants.
