Canadian officials are expected to provide an update Thursday on the country’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
On Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden said he’s planning to give surplus COVID-19 vaccines to other countries, including Canada, in the future as his country’s vaccination rollout hit another milestone.
It isn’t the first time the U.S. has offered vaccine help to Canada. In March, the U.S. provided 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine on loan. In other words, Canada will eventually have to return the favour.
Through a bilateral agreement, 20 million doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine are expected to funnel into Canada from manufacturing plants in the U.S. over the second and third quarters of this year.
