Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Tuesday that Canada has reached an agreement with Pfizer to purchase 20 million additional vaccine doses.
"From our agreements with Moderna and Pfizer alone, we will now have 80 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines arriving this year. We're on track to have every Canadian who wants a vaccine receive one by September," said Trudeau.
Trudeau said that the provinces and territories have been notified on how many vaccines they will respectively receive every week from now until the end of February.
"We will continue to work to get even more vaccines delivered as soon as we can," said Trudeau.
Trudeau also said that between now and June, 20 million Canadians would be able to get vaccinated, and that he had hopes to fast-track the delivery of vaccines, though September 2021 remains the goal for full vaccination.
