This week, Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine supply will be getting a huge boost with over 640,000 doses expected to arrive within days.

In a tweet on Sunday evening, Minister of Public Services and Procurement Anita Anand confirmed the news, announcing that some shipments have already started to arrive.

Anand confirmed that 643,000 doses would continue to arrive throughout the week from both Pfizer and BioNTech, and Moderna.

They’re expected to be distributed across the country.

Alongside the notice, Anand shared several photos of the shipments being delivered by UPS and picked up by officials from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

It’s good news for the country’s supply after poor weather conditions in the United States caused Canada’s biggest-ever shipment to be delayed last week.

Speaking recently about Canada’s vaccination distribution plan, the prime minister promised that anybody who wants their doses should be able to get them by September 2021.

By the end of the same month, the country will have received a whopping 84 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.
