Canada to commence inoculation of of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine today

The first batch of COVID-19 vaccines has arrived in Canada said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canadians are likely to roll up their sleeves to take a shot as early as later today.

“The first batch of doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine have arrived in Canada,” tweeted Trudeau above a picture of a cargo jet that was supposedly used to transport the vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE.

The United States and Canada are the first Western nations after the UK to begin inoculations.

The initial 30,000 doses will go to 14 sites across Canada.

Inoculations will be first given to frontline workers and the elderly.

The vaccines left Belgium, where they were produced, on Friday, and traveled to Germany and the United States before being split up and sent to inoculation points in Canada.
