At a news conference in Calgary, Tyler Shandro, the Alberta health minister, responds to the federal government’s announcement that Pfizer will be temporarily reducing the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses that it ships to Canada. He is joined by Dr. Laura McDougall, the senior medical officer of health at Alberta Health Services.

Pfizer has said that the slowdown is necessary in order to increase production capacity at one of its European manufacturing facilities.
