‘Front of the line’ procurement of ‘the most doses per capita’ has turned into begging other countries for scraps.
Canada’s ‘world-leading’ vaccine procurement promised by the Trudeau government continues to devolve into desperation.
Now, after Canada asked the USA for help, the Biden Administration is planning to give 1.5 million AstraZeneca doses to Canada, in what they are calling a ‘loan’.
“Our first priority remains vaccinating the U.S. population,” said Press Secretary Jen Psaki, adding “ensuring our neighbours can contain the virus is a mission critical step, is mission critical to ending the pandemic.”
The US has stockpiled millions of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
However, that vaccine has not yet been authorized for actual use in the United States.
The US is also sending 2.5 million doses to Mexico.
Clearly, Canada’s vaccine procurement has been a relative failure, with the government dependent on foreign countries and scraps from those who planned ahead.
