Pfizer/BioNTEch COVID-19 vaccines First batch reaches in Canada

The first batch of Coronavirus vaccines arrived in Canada on Sunday, according to the statement made by the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Some Canadians are expected to roll up their sleeves for a shot as soon as Monday.

“The first batch of doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine have arrived in Canada,” Trudeau said on Twitter above a picture of a cargo jet apparently used to transport the vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc and Germany’s BioNTech SE.

Canada and the United States are set to become the first Western nations after the United Kingdom to start inoculations. The initial 30,000 doses will go to fourteen sites across Canada. The most vulnerable people, including the elderly in long-term care facilities and healthcare workers, will be first in line for shots. The vaccines left Belgium, where they were produced, on Friday, and travelled to Germany and the US before being split up and sent to inoculation points in Canada.
