Four million doses of the Pfizer vaccine will arrive in Canada by the end of March.
The delivery schedule for the following months has been moved up so doses will be coming sooner than originally planned.
Trudeau said that 10.8 million doses from Pfizer are expected to arrive between April and June.
An additional 6.2 million doses will arrive between July and September, according to the federal government.
Canada has also purchased four million additional doses of the Moderna vaccine that are set to be delivered over the summer.
Trudeau said recently that getting a COVID-19 vaccine isn't mandatory, but there could be consequences for those who don't.
