As of April 2, Canada has received 9.5 million COVID-19 vaccines. By the end of September, we will have enough vaccines for every Canadian who wants to be vaccinated.
Expedited distribution to provinces will continue over the weeks ahead. Canada was initially scheduled to receive a total of 6 million vaccines by the end of the first quarter, with Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca, Canada has now received 9.5 million COVID-19 vaccines. Canada is also on track to receive a cumulative total of more than 40 million by the end of June.
Updated information on vaccine distribution by province and territory will continue to be available on the government's website.
