Canada orders 20 million more doses of Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine: PM

Don't buy vaccines online: Swiss officials warn

Dr. Bonnie Henry says the move is backed by science and will help maximize the vaccine's distribution, noting the delay will allow the province to vaccinate another 150,000 high-risk people. In the case of Moderna's vaccine, the established interval is between 21 and 28 days.

Afraid that Covid vaccines will be in short supply in Switzerland, some people are turning to the internet to purchase their doses.

JOE BIDEN has received a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine on camera to show fellow Americans that it is safe.

With a total of 7.5 million doses lined up, it represents the country's largest COVID-19 vaccine order. Henry says new shipments are expected by Thursday.

About 10 per cent of the population should be vaccinated by March 31, with details on who will be vaccinated and when expected to come later this month.


After receiving a first batch of a COVID-19 vaccine from the U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and its German partner, BioNTech, Greece now will get 240,000 doses from the Boston-area firm Moderna.

Wright's firm also asked respondents how they thought governments were doing on the vaccine rollout and 57 per cent of Canadians said Trudeau was doing a good job getting the vaccines delivered, while 55 per cent said the provinces were doing a good job getting the vaccines into arms.

The speed of vaccinations is set to rise in coming weeks, with yesterday seeing the first batch of the Moderna vaccine - the second vaccine passed for use in Ireland, along with the Pfizer vaccine - arriving in Ireland.

"We're going to continue working to see if we can get a few more doses, because all Canadians want this to move forward as quickly as possible".
