Massive amounts of vaccine are going to be delivered in May & June. The government is expecting 48 to 50 million shots to be delivered by July 1.

Things are looking good. And I don't sense much hesitancy out there either.
Polling indicates 85% of Canadian adults already have, urgently want to, or are willing but not in a rush to get vaccinated. Thankfully, Canada avoided making the choice to get vaccinated political.

According to our most recent council meeting, only 65% of our population over 80 has received their first shot. Small town, very rural….no deaths so far and less than 100 cases since the start. But, we are 20 mins from a hotspot and 90 mins from Toronto.

This is good news. I wonder about the 48-50 million doses. I figure between 30 million of Pfizer and Moderna. I know that JNJ will start sending vaccines but I haven't seen any established number. I suppose we can get more Aztrezenca again Ihaven't seen any firm numbers on that one. I suspect the the reason for the big increase is supply is now exceeding demand in the USA. Anyways no matter how you slice it vaccines are a good thing.

Yup, supply is looking pretty good. Everyone I talk to (that is eligible) has either got the shot or is scheduled for it.

Capitalism has been kicked around pretty good over years. May-be we should all pause and thank capitalism for the miracle vaccines that have been developed by Pfizer and Moderna and to a lesser extent JNJ and Astrezenca. For people 35 and younger is isn't hard to find hard line socialists with a contempt for capitalism. That is a sad reality. In the midst of a great crisis capitalism has proven how important and vital it is.

Everything the government has done has just made matters worse i.e., lock downs & wearing of masks etc. Amazing how many trust the drug dealers that have been granted immunity with their so called vaccines that are really genetic cocktails.. Why would anyone expect the trend to change & think the so called vaccines long term side effects will not reduce the population with Genocide? The vaccines are a perfect way to reduce the worlds population & control which people get certain genetic cocktails.

Can not trust the Covid tests, Die of a heart attack Covid it is put down as cause of death, media is censoring anything that goes against the UN agenda. With the government & drug dealers track record why would anyone trust them ? Can not make this stuff up. Scare people & they become as dumb as the dumbest person in the herd.

Called it. :D

Some Pfizer vaccines to start being supplied from their Kalamazoo plant starting next week.

Watched a news segment which discussed the possibility that supply could outstrip demand in the States by April.
Pure speculation on my part but I would guess/hope that some extra supply could start getting redirected to Canada by May (??).
lol, I don't think it's about "liking Trudeau". It's known that the feds have a contract with Pfizer and Moderna but with quarterly timelines and being supplied out of Europe.
It may take some combo of (political) influence and cash but if Pfizer and Moderna are meeting their commitments to the States, I can see some of the delivery timelines moved up with surplus production from the States.

Realistically, apart from a bit of the vaccine diplomacy going on, countries are looking after their own citizens first. Make no mistake that I'm happy that it looks like I'll be able to book a vaccine appointment within the next couple of weeks. But the optics from a global perspective likely aren't great that Canada has pre-ordered the most vaccines per per capita and seems to be vaccine hoarding. Though I'm pretty sure the vaccines will eventually be released to other countries after supply in Canada outstrips demand too or get close to this mythical herd immunity level.

In other words, the US was hoarding vaccine production.
With this attitude the Americans sould send it somewhere else. Let's be clear Astrezenca hasn't been approved by the FDA . Should they dump a substandard product on others? With Trudeau begging they gave in. Until recently the US wasn't producing enough Pfizer or Moderna to meet their own demand. That has recently changed and they are now giving us a large chunk of the surplus. Liberal are ungrateful lot.

We have contracts. They prohibited private companies from fulfilling their obligations to other countries. Canada can only thank the EU for living up to its obligations, as that is where most of our doses came from. The USA stiffed the rest of the world.

Contracts with no delivery dates and being the last country on the train. It is sad how Liberals misrepresent reality.

Last country on the train? Canada went out of its way to get a huge number of doses.

I looked at the Bloomberg vaccine tracker tonight to see where we stand. There are about 140 countries in this list, and I'm showing what fits in the screen shot. Despite the suppliers not delivering on their promises, Canada has been able to deliver a huge # of total shots.

Ontario hit 40% of their population vaccinated with 1 dose, last week. I imagine the province's vaccination program benefited from having more hot spots, then other provinces. Nothing like a big fire to motivate people to do something to protect themselves.

Maybe, but I don't blame them. They had the money, power and abilities and like it or not we still live in a world with borders so I can understand them serving themselves first.
Sure the US is being a bit selfish, but not everyone is as dumb as Canada shipping out their stockpiles right before the pandemic hits.

And relying on China for their first vaccines. Funny how the Liberals conveniently overlook this fact. Trudeau and China: bad judgement in action
