Canada contracts with Novavax for 76 million vaccine doses for 2021”

On Monday, Trudeau said that after signing agreements with Novavax and Johnson & Johnson - which were signed today - and also with Pfizer and Moderna, residents will have access to 88 million doses "with the option to have tens of millions more" when the vaccine is ready for humans to safely use.

The federal government is acknowledging that competition to secure prospective vaccines is fierce as countries jockey to ensure they will be able to inoculate their populace once a treatment is available.

Canada's top public health officers say widespread vaccination of Canadians is the only way to corral COVID-19 and allow life to return to a semblance of its pre-pandemic state. "So what we have done is to be very aggressive in these negotiations, indicating the delivery timelines as being very important for Canada".

Earlier on Monday, it was revealed that the Government of Canada reached a new agreement with biotech company Novavax to supply 76 million doses of a potential vaccine.
