Bloomberg reported on December 14 that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau said that the country had received the first batch of Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccines.

According to Reuters, the first 30,000 doses of vaccine will be sent to 14 locations across Canada, and the most vulnerable people such as medical staff and elderly people who have long lived in nursing facilities will be injected first.

By the end of this year, Canada is expected to have 249,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
