Global National: Jan. 24, 2021 | Canada lagging behind other countries for vaccine rollout

In our top story: It’s going to be a tough week on the COVID-19 vaccine front in Canada with no new doses arriving from Pfizer-BioNTech. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s received assurances from the company that it will follow through with deliveries when production gets going again. But a member of cabinet and close confidante of Trudeau is hinting two other vaccines could be approved in the near future, though it’s not known yet if it will make up for the delay. Abigail Bimman reports.

The medical strategies to get the pandemic under control are a complex and evolving process. But the emergence of new, highly contagious variants is making that process more difficult. Some health experts say more aggressive steps need to be taken and the clock is ticking. Katherine Ward reports.

Ontario and Quebec remain the COVID-19 hotspots in Canada. But, a promising trend is starting to emerge in both provinces. Overall, daily case numbers and hospitalizations are declining. But as Tim Sargeant explains, health officials warn now is not the time for Canadians to let their guard down.

There is new information tonight about one of the youngest people in Ontario to die from the novel coronavirus. Officials say the teen was working at a long-term care home near London, Ont. and had arrived in Canada just a few years ago. Morganne Campbell explains.

To the U.S., where there has been an astonishing 25 million infected with COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. And there is growing frustration among Americans waiting to get their shot. But the White House is asking for patience and as Jennifer Johnson reports, the new administration is optimistic about its vaccination plan.

At the start of the pandemic, retired nurses answered the call to return to the front lines and help save lives. Now, they’re needed again to improve sluggish vaccine rates. Ross Lord reports on what they’re being asked to do.

A recent winter storm in the United Kingdom forced COVID-19 testing and vaccination centres to shut down, putting a short pause on the efforts to combat the coronavirus. So far, more than six million people across the U.K. have received their first dose of vaccine. Europe bureau chief Crystal Goomansingh has a look at the race to vaccinate in the U.K. and around the world.
