Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has praised Canada's COVID-19 vaccine distribution, noting that the current rate of vaccination is "going to continue."

Speaking on April 27, the PM took a moment to specifically thank "Generation X" across Canada for stepping up to get vaccine doses over the past week, when COVID-19 vaccine age limits were lowered in some parts of the country.

"Because of the high uptake […] we're now second in the G20 in terms of vaccination doses," Trudeau explained.

The G20 is made up of 19 countries (including Canada) and the European Union.

The prime minister's message was backed by infectious diseases physician Isaac Bogoch from the University of Toronto, who shared data on April 24 showing that "Canada is now consistently ranked #2 among G20 countries for the rate of #COVID19 vaccines administered."
