Coronavirus: Canadian officials give technical briefing on vaccine rollout | LIVE

Government of Canada officials will hold a technical briefing to provide an overview of the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines on Thursday.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has warned provinces and territories that the country could see further disruptions to its deliveries of COVID-19 vaccines from Moderna this month after announcing last week that American pharmaceutical giant Moderna would only be shipping approximately 78 per cent of Canada’s expected allotment of its COVID-19 vaccine during the first week of February.

Canada has signed a deal with Novavax to produce its COVID-19 vaccine in Montreal amid global supply shortages, with the construction of the production facility to be completed by the end of the summer.
