Federal health officials say Canada now has purchase agreements with seven COVID-19 vaccine producers.

Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Doctor Howard Njoo says most are in the final stages of testing before they can go to Health Canada for approval.

Officials say they expect the first doses of vaccines to be delivered in the first three months of the new year.
