PM Justin Trudeau

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his government has now signed an agreement with Pfizer for another eight-million doses of its vaccine.

The news follows word earlier today that Canada's incoming vaccine supply from Moderna will be slashed in half through the rest of April.

Trudeau says for next month alone, the number of Pfizer doses will be double what we were expecting.

He says it means more Canadians can be vaccinated more quickly.

Trudeau says Pfizer will deliver four-million additional doses in May, two-million additional doses in June and two-million more in July.

Trudeau says the bottom line is more doses arriving sooner, means more people getting their vaccines faster.
