Trudeau vaccine Canada doses Pfizer June

5 million Pfizer doses to arrive in Canada ahead of schedule

This brings the total to 9.6 million doses for June alone.

In a press conference this morning, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke about the spring/summer timetable for COVID-19 vaccine doses, announcing that 5 million Pfizer/BioNTech doses will be arriving in Canada in June, ahead of schedule. He also noted that the 6-million-dose goal set for the end of March (ie. today) has been achieved.

“This week we begin our ramp-up phase. Throughout April and May, 1,000,000 doses per week are scheduled to arrive from Pfizer alone. Plus Moderna, plus AstraZeneca. And for June, we have good news to share this morning. Pfizer has now confirmed that they will be moving up 5 million doses from later in the summer to June. That will bring our total from 4.6 million to 9.6 million doses for that month alone. Of course that’s in addition to the other doses of the Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines that we’ll also get. A lot of doses being delivered means more people are able to get their shot.”
