The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has promised that every Canadian who wants a vaccine will get one by September, 2021 as the country is winning the war against COVID-19.

Canadian Prime Minister who made this known on his official social platform on Tuesday, while speaking with Moderna vaccine’ CEO, Stephane Bancel who confirmed that vaccine doses will be delivered in a timely manner.  

According to him, “I spoke with Moderna’s CEO, Stéphane Bancel. He confirmed that we’ll receive doses in a timely manner and that the delivery of our orders is on schedule in the coming weeks and months.

“We’re on track to have every Canadian who wants a vaccine get one by September”, he said.
Meanwhile, Canada contracted with five other vaccine makers, but only two are on the verge of approval here.

AstraZeneca, which has guaranteed Canada 20 million doses, needs to finish a big U.S. trial before Health Canada decides whether to authorize it.

Johnson and Johnson is to report results from its Phase 3 trial next week, one of the final things needed before Health Canada can make a decision about it.

Canada is to get 10 million doses from Johnson and Johnson, but it is the one vaccine that so far is administered as only a single dose.
