How Long Each Province Will Take To Reach Their Vaccination Goals

September 3, 2021

News that Canada is behind other countries in their COVID-19 vaccination rollout plans (while at a critical point in the pandemic) has experts worried that the country won’t meet the September 2021 vaccination goal set by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.


Canada is struggling to contain a second wave of the novel coronavirus. The health ministry said there could be a spike of more than 100,000 new cases in just the next nine days. That means almost 12,000 new cases per day, compared with the 7,565 new cases reported.

The spike in cases is being driven mainly by the populous provinces of Ontario and Quebec, health officials said, both of which have imposed health restrictions in recent weeks to try to slow the spread.


Pfizer’s reduction of its COVID-19 vaccine shipments will not delay Canada’s goal of getting most people inoculated by the end of September. Pfizer said it would slow production in late January and early February due to changes to manufacturing processes aimed at boosting production, but would provide a “significant increase” in doses in late February and March.


“This is a temporary delay and we remain on track to have enough approved vaccines for everyone who wishes to get vaccinated by the end of September 2021,”  -Procurement Minister Anita Anand


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, 20 million Canadians would be able to get their shots by June. But while the government says it is possible that could happen with more vaccine approvals, so far the country has secured enough vaccines to inoculate 13 million people within that time frame.


Canada's vaccine rollout to date lags behind that of other major Western nations, according to Our World in Data. Even after adjusting for population, the United States has been able to vaccinate its citizens at 2.7 times Canada's rate, while the United Kingdom has done so at more than four times our rate.


Until then, keep safe and protected with proper Medical PPE
