Canada has enough vaccine doses for all eligible Canadians, PM says – CBC

The 66 million doses procured enough to cover everyone in Canada 12 and older

Jul 27, 2021

Canada has enough COVID-19 vaccine doses to fully vaccinate everyone eligible in the country, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at a Moncton, N.B., vaccine clinic this morning.

The arrival of five million doses this week will bring the total to over 66 million — enough for all 33.2 million Canadians 12 and older. Children under 12 are not yet eligible to receive a vaccine.

“With enough doses for everyone, there’s no more excuses not to get your shot,” Trudeau said.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the government had set the end of September as the date when all Canadians who want to be fully vaccinated would be able to get both doses.

“Not only have we kept that promise, but we’ve delivered it two months ahead of schedule,” Trudeau said.
