Are Canada's COVID-19 vaccine shipments from the EU at risk?


CBC News shows that Minister of Public Services and Procurement Anita Anand says vaccine shipments from the EU are not in jeopardy because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau certainly received assurances from the European Commission president that exports will not be blocked.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he remains confident in Canada's vaccine supplies despite threats from Europe that it might impose export controls on vaccines produced on that continent.

On Tuesday morning, Trudeau said the situation in Europe is worrisome but he is "very confident" Canada is going to get all the COVID-19 vaccine doses promised by the end of March. And despite the sharp decline in deliveries of a vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech this month, he said Canada will still vaccinate all Canadians who want shots by the end of September.

"We will continue to work closely with Europe to ensure that we are sourcing, that we are receiving the vaccines that we have signed for, that we are due," Trudeau said.
