Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will provide an update Friday on the country’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the state of the vaccine rollout.
It comes after federal officials said Thursday that Canadians could get their COVID-19 vaccines “sooner than originally anticipated.”
To date, more than 41 per cent of Canadian adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to deputy chief public health officer Dr. Howard Njoo. But based on the quantity of vaccines flowing into Canada over the next few weeks, officials say the timeline could move up.
For the month of May, two million doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine will be entering Canada every week and during the week of May 16, one million Moderna doses will also arrive.
