Corona virus: Canada reaches new daily vaccine record

Halifax – Canada reached a new milestone on Friday with its COVID-19 vaccination effort, recording more than 400,000 doses in a single day.

Canada administered a total of 400,489 doses of the first and second doses on Friday, according to the vaccine watchdog of CTV News.com.

Of the 400,489 doses issued by the federal government, 375,636 were first-dose and the remaining 24,853 were second-dose.

More than 14 million people now have at least one dose, which equates to 37 percent of all Canadians. A total of 14,104,164 Canadians received at least one vaccine as of Friday afternoon.

The last time Canada reached the daily total dose record was on April 23 when 362,525 vaccines were given.

This week, the arrival of incoming vaccines coming into the country led to the expansion of vaccine eligibility to some provinces.

Alberta has opened vaccination appointments for all adults over 18 years of age. By the end of Friday 142,000 appointments were made.

In Ontario, the Peel Region allowed all adults over the age of 18 to book a Thursday appointment.
