Canada Vaccine Timeline Could See Everyone With A Dose By Summer

It looks like Canada's vaccination timeline could be moved up as it's expected there will be enough supplies to get everyone a single dose by the summer.

During an update, Major-General Dany Fortin, the head of the country's vaccine distribution, said Canada is set to get over 30 million doses between April and June.

Canada will have received eight million vaccine doses by the end of March, and that, combined with the 30 million doses set to arrive by the end of June, could be enough for the country's population.

It's expected that 12 million doses from Pfizer will come between April and June, along with over 1 million from AstraZeneca in April and 500,000 in May.

Dr. Howard Njoo, Canada's deputy chief public health officer, said hopefully everyone will have received their first dose in a few months if provinces and territories delay second doses as recommended.
