Canadian officials provide update on COVID-19 response, vaccine rollout progress | LIVE

CA, 02 Apr 2021
Canadian federal and health officials are expected to provide an update Thursday on the government's ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canada's first shipment of single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is set to arrive by the end of April, Procurement Minister Anita Anand said.

Canada approved the vaccine in early March and had pre-ordered 10 million doses, but manufacturing problems from the company led to shipment delays to Canada and elsewhere.

The news comes as Ontario, Canada's most populous province, is entering a 4-week lockdown amid sharp rise in cases and hospitalizations.
