Summer 2021 In Canada Can Be Normal If Two Things Happen Says Trudeau

Justin Trudeau has revealed what summer 2021 in Canada could look like and there's hope that the country can get some normality back because of COVID-19 vaccines.

"We all want to have a summer where we can see our loved ones and invite friends over for barbeques. We can have that summer," Trudeau said.

There are two things that need to happen for the country to have a normal, better summer, according to the PM. First, restrictions need to stay in place until case numbers go down; second, at least 75% of Canadians need to have the first dose of a vaccine.

He added that by the summer, Canada will have received enough vaccines for every eligible person to have gotten a first dose, and that, by September, there will be "enough doses for every Canadian to be fully vaccinated."

Trudeau's calling it "a one-dose summer" which will then lead to "a two-dose fall," and at that point, the country will be able to talk about getting back to even more normality.
