Justin Trudeau Says There Are 'No More Excuses' For Canadians To Not Get Vaccinated
The PM also boasted that Canada is way ahead of its vaccination schedule.
When it comes to getting vaccinated in Canada, Justin Trudeau said that there are "no more excuses" for staying unvaccinated.
During a press conference on July 27, the prime minister announced that Canada has now received enough COVID-19 vaccine doses — over 66 million to be exact — to be able to fully vaccinate everyone in the country who's eligible.
Trudeau recalled that he promised to have enough doses to fully vaccinate Canada's eligible population by the end of September, and he boasted that the promise has been kept two whole months ahead of schedule.
This — along with other factors like vaccines being safe, effective and "completely free" — are why the prime minister believes there are no excuses anymore for people to not get vaccinated.
Trudeau also gave a list of reasons why people should be getting vaccinated, which includes doing it for themselves, for their loved ones who need protection, for health care workers and for kids under 12 years old who can't get doses yet.
