Canada’s territories will have enough doses to fully vaccinate 75 per cent of their adult populations against the coronavirus “by the end of March,” Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller said on Wednesday.
Chief Medical Officer of Public Health Dr. Tom Wong added that this figure refers to both doses, meaning that by the end of the first quarter, the territories will have enough doses to provide both injections of the two-shot regime.
The comments come on the heels of an announcement from the government that Canada has secured an additional 20 million Pfizer vaccine doses, bringing Canada’s total vaccine supply for 2021 to 80 million doses – which is more doses than would be required to vaccinate every single person living in Canada.
