Federal Government Preparing for Influx of COVID-19 Vaccines Saying Q1 Targets Will Be Met

Canada is seeing positive signs that the COVID-19 vaccination campaign is ramping up, health officials said on Thursday, a development that could help relieve pressure on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Howard Njoo, Canada’s deputy chief public health officer, said more than 240,000 doses had been injected last week, the highest weekly total in more than a month. Canada’s 10 provinces and three northern territories administer the vaccines.

On Thursday, officials released figures for how many doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccine should arrive in the country in the coming weeks. In total, the drugmakers are expected to meet their combined target of six million doses to Canada by the end of March.

Moderna — which ships supply at 3-week intervals — is expected to deliver 460,000 doses the week of March 8, and 846,000 doses the week of March 22.

Meanwhile, Pfizer is expected to deliver 444,000 doses per week in March, increasing to 769,000 doses in each of the first two weeks of April.

Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin outlined details of the new figures and said the country is preparing to “scale-up” its vaccination efforts with tens of millions of doses expected in late spring and summer.
