The West Block: May 16, 2021 | What will Canada do with 655,000 doses of AstraZeneca?
CA, 16 May 2021
This week on The West Block: guest host Mike Le Couteur speaks with Canada’s Procurement Minister Anita Anand about what the government plans to do with the 655,000 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses that were delivered last week. This comes after many provinces put a pause on administering first doses of this particular vaccine following concerns of blood clots.
Jessica Mudry, associate chair of the School of Professional Communication at Ryerson University, and Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist with the University of Saskatchewan’s Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization, joined Le Couteur for a discussion around how the government is communicating the science of COVID-19 — and what can be done better.
Plus, a panel of journalists on Parliament Hill speak about the military police investigation into Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin and what’s next for Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
