Canada has enough COVID-19 vaccines to fully vaccinate eligible Canadians: Trudeau says | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “Canada has enough COVID-19 vaccines to fully vaccinate eligible Canadians: Trudeau says | FULL” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Tuesday that the country had received more than 66 million COVID-19 vaccines, enough to fully vaccinate every eligible Canadian.

As of Tuesday, 64 per cent of all eligible Canadians have been fully vaccinated with at least 80 per cent having one dose.

Trudeau said despite the numbers, following a national public health report shows 89.8 per cent of reported cases across Canada are among those who are unvaccinated, the government would continue to work with provinces and territories to push for more Canadians to get a vaccine dose. The report also found 82.3 per cent of people who died had not yet received a vaccine. Researchers also reported fully vaccinated people were 69 per cent less likely to be hospitalized and 49 per cent less like to die from COVID-19 than those who were unvaccinated.
