Canadian health officials provide COVID-19 update on vaccine rollout | LIVE

CA, 20 Jul 2021
Canadian ministers and government health officials will provide an update on Tuesday on the country's current fight against COVID-19, and the ongoing vaccination campaign.

Canada, which lagged early on during its vaccination campaign, has vaccinated 70 per cent of its population with at least one dose, and over half are fully vaccinated.

Starting Aug. 9, fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents will be allowed to cross the border into Canada for non-essential travel without having to quarantine upon arrival. On Sept. 7, the same rules will be applied to other countries around the world.

Canada’s latest vaccine milestone comes as just 346 new cases of COVID-19 were reported across the country Monday, along with 15 new deaths since Friday.
