Government says Canada will get about one-third of what was expected by February 7th, rather than the previous claim of a 50% cut.
It turns out that the delay in Canada’s Pfizer vaccine delivery will be worse than originally reported.
While it is known that Canada will go an entire week without getting any of the Pfizer vaccine, it is now being revealed that the government is expecting less than one-third of the previously expected amount as of February 7th, even when including the one-week delay.
Furthermore, Major General Dany Fortin has noted that – according to the CP – Canada ‘doesn’t know’ how many doses we will be getting the following week.
Canada is facing delays that are longer than some other comparable countries, while the US is facing no Pfizer delay due to strong domestic production.
While some have tried blaming provincial governments for this, the reality is that vaccine procurement is solely a federal responsibility, and this represents a clear failure by the Trudeau government, a point I made in my latest column for the National Citizens Coalition.
