Global News published this video item, entitled “AstraZeneca COVID-19 doses from US will arrive in Canada next week, officials say | FULL” – below is their description.

Canada expects to receive 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine next week through a sharing deal with the United States, but officials say further shipments from the U.S. could hinge on the regulatory approval of additional U.S. facilities.

“When we have a confirmed delivery date to Canada, this quantity will be added to the quarterly distribution goal of vaccine doses,” said Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin, the head of Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution team.

Canada has been in the midst of finalizing an agreement with the U.S. that would see Ottawa receive 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca shot as a “loan,” meaning Canada will eventually have to return the favour.

Health Canada’s chief medical adviser Dr. Supriya Sharma also said two facilities slated to manufacture AstraZeneca vaccines in the U.S. are currently under review “to make sure they meet the regulatory requirements” to produce the drugs for Canadians. In the interim, Health Canada will allow the vaccines coming to Canada to be stored “so they will be in Canada for quick distribution” once they’re given the seal of approval.
