There's a big increase when it comes to COVID-19 vaccine deliveries in Canada.

In a technical briefing Major General Dany Fortin, who is in charge of Canada's vaccine rollout, revealed that for the next few weeks, the country will be receiving at least two million doses of COVID-19 vaccines every single week.

This big increase means that between now and June, Canada will receive as many doses as they have since the first shipment arrived in December.

"If you look at what we have received to date and distributed, which is approximately 15 million doses since we started in December, what you will see between now and the first week of June is about the same amount," Fortin said.

In June, weekly deliveries are expected to increase even more with at least 2.4 million doses set to arrive each week that month.
