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.

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