Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin, head of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution team said on Thursday that over 1.1 million doses of vaccines have been delivered so far to provinces and territories after Pfizer announced their supply to Canada would be reduced by an average of 50 per cent until mid-February.
The delay is due to efforts to expand Pfizer’s production plant in Belgium, said Fortin.
Canada has a total of 719,000 COVID-19 cases and more than 18,200 deaths due to the virus as of Thursday.
More than 20.6 million tests have been performed to date.
