As Moderna delays high doses, Pfizer helps announce vaccine delivery incentives

OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to announce on Friday that Canada will receive higher Pfizer vaccine levels, ahead of expectations, CTV News reported. This comes as the federal government has announced that the next planned Moderna ship will be lower than promised.

In a statement, Procurement Minister Anita Anand’s Office said on Thursday that the next vaccine shipment to Moderna Canada, scheduled for the end of April, would be around 650,000 quantities instead of about 1.2 million.

Moreover, up to two million of the total 12.3 million now promised modern arrivals to Canada may be delayed until the third quarter because their productivity is being affected “slower than expected”. Many countries.

“We are disappointed and while we understand the challenges facing suppliers in the current global market for vaccines, our government will continue to put pressure on Moderna to fulfill its obligations,” Anand said in a statement.

“We share the urgency for Canadians to get vaccinated quickly. It is our job every day for all approved vaccines. The Prime Minister and I have more to say on this issue this morning, ”said Anand.

This is an important message, and more to come.
