More than 50 per cent of Canadians who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine have now been fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
In a statement, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that with 68 million doses expected to land by the end of July, Canada is on track to have everyone who is eligible fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of the summer.
“Canada’s vaccination strategy is “bearing out,” with increasing take-up and steadily declining new infections,” he stressed, noting that new infections across the country continue to decline with an average of 451 cases reported daily during the last seven days.
“Our goal is to make sure that as many people as possible are protected, and we’re going to continue to work with the international community to make sure that people who are fully vaccinated in ways that Canadians recognize as safe and effective, are also recognized around the world,” Trudeau further said.
