    As Canada braces for delays in receiving more Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines for COVID-19, the country is already falling behind countries like Italy and Romania when it comes to its vaccination rates.

    But a member of cabinet and close confidante of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is hinting that two other vaccines could be approved in the near future, though it’s not yet known if it will make up for the delay. Abigail Bimman reports.

    As the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and new variants have emerged, countries are trying to step up vaccinations as much as they can, as fast as they can.

    More than six million in the United Kingdom have received their vaccine. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government is aiming to vaccinate approximately 15 million in the over 70 and high-risk group by mid-February.

    Crystal Goomansingh takes a look at the race to vaccinate against COVID-19 around the world.
