The US Is Acting Like A Friendly Neighbour & Donating A Million Vaccine Doses To Canada
The shipment is coming in tonight!
Once again the U.S. is donating vaccines to Canada and an additional million doses will be arriving in the country soon.
Canada's Procurement Minister Anita Anand announced on June 17 that the two governments reached an agreement for a million doses of Moderna to be sent to Canada from the U.S. that same evening.

Anand thanked President Joe Biden and other government officials for supporting the access to COVID-19 vaccines from the U.S. for Canadians.
"We continue to work with partners around the world, including the United States, to ensure access to vaccines for Canadians, as well as to help meet demands internationally," she said.
This isn't the first time Canada has received donated doses from the neighbouring country. Back in March, the U.S. agreed to send 1.5 million doses of AstraZeneca here. A month later, Biden revealed after a chat with Justin Trudeau that his government was going to try and help Canada again.
