Millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines expected to arrive in Ontario by March
Canada will be getting four million doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
Ontario’s Health Minister Christine Elliott says this province will receive 1-point-six million shots of the Pfizer vaccine and 8-hundred thousand of the Moderna vaccine between January and March.
Pfizer announced Wednesday morning its vaccine has proven to be 95-percent effective in late stage trials.
Both doses must be stored at sub-zero temperatures and people need to get two shots 21 days apart.
Elliott says this does mean some logistical challenges but the Health Ministry has an entire team working on a plan.
