Canada is set to receive 2.2 million doses of the corona virus vaccine this week

More than two million vaccines are due to arrive in Canada this week as the country strives to control the widespread wildfire outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

This includes the first batch of Oxford-Astrogeneca vaccines – 316,800 doses – to be shipped to Canada from a global vaccine distribution initiative known as the Kovacs facility.

Canada has contributed $ 440 million to COVAX, half to Canada to receive 15 million doses of vaccines and half to buy vaccines for poor countries that cannot afford to own one.

While any member state can attract Kovacs products for its own use, Canada has been severely criticized for undermining the sense of Kovacs initiative, which is to ensure that vaccines are distributed equally to poorer countries.

In addition to the Kovacs distribution, Canada plans to receive 1,019,070 doses of Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine and 855,600 doses of Moderna vaccine over the next seven days.

This is a total dose of 2.2 million, following over three million doses last week.

By the end of the first quarter, Canada had received a total of 9.5 million doses – 6 million ahead of what the federal government had originally promised, despite reduced production restrictions on vaccine supply in February and early March.

In the second quarter, Canada plans to receive at least one million doses of Pfizer vaccine each week until the end of May, increasing to two million per week in June.

A total of 44 million doses of Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines are on the way to Canada Day.

The federal government has promised that every Canadian who wants to be vaccinated against COVID-19 will be fully vaccinated by the end of September.

The vaccine curve is coming as COVID-19 cases are rising across the country.

Canada on Saturday crossed a critical milestone since the virus hit the country in January last year, recording more than a million cases of COVID-19.

As of Sunday afternoon, 23,043 Canadians had died from the disease.
