In Ottawa, Major General Dany Fortin, vice-president of logistics and operations at the Public Health Agency of Canada and head of the country’s vaccine distribution efforts, joins federal ministers Patty Hajdu (health), Dominic LeBlanc (intergovernmental affairs), and Treasury Board president Jean-Yves Duclos to provide an update on the federal response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. Major General Fortin says that Pfizer will be delivering an average of 50 percent fewer doses of its vaccine over the next four weeks. The quantity of doses delivered will increase towards the end of February. This temporary reduction is due to the company’s expansion plans aimed at increasing production capacity at its European manufacturing facility. (January 15, 2021)
