Canada to receive fewer Pfizer vaccine doses than expected in Q1 - media report

OTTAWA, Jan 28 (Reuters) - Canada will receive only 3.5 million doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in the first quarter of 2021, not the 4 million the country had expected, a reporter from Global News tweeted on Thursday, citing two unnamed provincial sources.

Although Pfizer had already cut shipments to Canada after slowing European production earlier in January, Ottawa has said repeatedly it expected the company to catch up by the end of March. The federal procurement ministry and Pfizer could not immediately be reached for comment. (Reporting by Steve Scherer in Ottawa, and Allison Martell in Toronto)
