Canada to receive one million vaccine doses a week by April

Coronavirus Updates Canada’s cases of COVID-19 have surpassed 700K

Fortin said efforts were underway to make sure the supplies and storage needs were identified so everything was in place when the bigger shipments started arriving.

Maj. -Gen. Dany Fortin, Vice President of Logistics for the Public Health Agency of Canada, says the country is on track to get nearly one-million doses of the vaccine by April.

Maj. -Gen. Dany Fortin, the vice-president of logistics for the Public Health Agency of Canada, says the specific delivery schedules for vaccines from both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are now available until the end of February. He says another 417,000 doses are coming by the end of January and 1.9-million will arrive in February.

Phase 2, the next quarter, also called the ramp-up phase.

Federal officials also revealed on Friday that shipments of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to the country would be delayed for four weeks due to production issues.


This would inoculate 10 million Canadians, after the three million vaccinated by the end of March.

The AstraZeneca vaccine, which could add another 20 million doses to Canada's total, is the only other one pending approval at the moment.

Ontario expects to expand its program in April, to seniors living independently, teachers, people working in food processing facilities, and those with high-risk chronic conditions.

He said that the ramp-up phase will be kicking off in April.
