The coronavirus vaccination program begins in Canada starting Monday. As part of this, the first shipment of the Pfizer vaccine has arrived in the country. In a post on Twitter on Sunday night, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed the case.
In a tweet with a picture of the cargo plane, Trudeau said that Pfizer-Bioentec’s first shipment of the Kovid ticker arrived in Canada.
In another tweet, Trudeau said, “Our fight against Corona is not over.” Now we have to be more careful than before.
Officials said the flight carrying the vaccine landed at Montreal’s Mirabell International Airport. CTV News reported that more vaccines are expected to arrive in Canada by Monday.
Initially, 30,000 doses of the vaccine will be administered at 14 locations in 10 Canadian provinces. The vaccine will be given to senior citizens and health workers who have been in home care centers for a long time.
Meanwhile, the Corona vaccination program in Canada as well as the United States is starting on Monday. Officials will recommend the vaccine to senior government officials, including outgoing President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. According to Reuters, key figures in the White House and officials of the three branches of government are expected to be vaccinated within the next 10 days. Initiatives have been taken to vaccinate top officials as part of a plan to protect the government.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The virus invented by Pfizer / Bioentech is said to provide 95 percent protection. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also considers the vaccine safe.
