Canada to get 7M Moderna COVID-19 vaccine doses in June, some coming from U.S.

Canada is set to receive seven million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in June, with some of the shots coming from a U.S. supplier, Procurement Minister Anita Anand said Wednesday.

The latest supply agreement marks the first time Canada will be procuring Moderna vaccines from the U.S. — all 6.1 million doses delivered to Canada from Moderna have so far come from the vaccine developer’s production lines in Europe.

Shipments of those seven million doses are slated to start next week, Anand said, adding that “more specifics concerning shipment dates and quantities” are to come.

“We continue to work with the company to stabilize it’s deliveries with Canada and that work is paying off,” Anand told reporters.

More to come.
