    Concerns are being raised in Canada over the reduction of the number of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses it will receive after the pharmaceutical giant said it would resume shipments to the European Union within two weeks.

    As of Saturday, no change to the delivery schedule had been made for Canada, which could mean a problem for provinces that did not reserve the required second dose for those who had received their first.

    David Akin reports on what this means for the ongoing vaccine rollout.
