Coronavirus: Canada criticized for taking vaccine doses from COVAX

The comment comes on the heels of criticism directed at the government over the news that Canada is the only G7 country to draw vaccines from the fund, which was established “to guarantee fair and equitable (vaccine) access for every country in the world.” Eric Sorensen looks at how other countries are doing with their vaccine rollout and why Canada is facing criticism for dipping into a special global pool of vaccines.
