When it comes to a COVID-19 vaccine, Canada has "the most diverse portfolio" in the world according to Justin Trudeau.

During a press conference on December 1, the Prime Minister spoke about how deals have been signed for hundreds of millions of doses of seven vaccine candidates that are being developed.

Trudeau noted that the candidates from Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca/Oxford and Johnson & Johnson have all now been submitted to Health Canada for review and approval.

Canada now has the most diverse portfolio of any country for vaccines.

He also confirmed that Canada is guaranteed some of Moderna's first batch, if the candidate is approved.

He mentioned that Canadians will have access to a range of possible options and to "more doses potentially per capita than any other country in the world."

The actual shot isn't the only thing the government is working on to help get people immunized.

"We've invested in everything from freezers to needles to be sure we can reach every Canadian who wants a vaccine no matter where they live," Trudeau explained on Tuesday.

Less than a week before this, he called this effort Canada's "biggest immunization" and said that most people in the country could actually be vaccinated by September 2021.
