However, Canada isn't expecting any doses until early next year.

Britain, the United States and Germany have all said their citizens could start getting COVID-19 jabs as early as next month and Spain has said it plans to start its vaccination campaign in January.

"So we will continue to press the prime minister and the federal government to provide greater clarity and to do our part to ensure that all Canadians, including those in Saskatchewan, have access to a safe, effective vaccine and have access to one in a timely manner", Moe said. They include ones from Moderna Inc., Pfizer Inc. and AstraZeneca PLC, all of which have shown successful preliminary test results. However, Trudeau said that the countries where these pharmaceutical companies are based, including the United States, will "obviously" prioritize vaccinating their citizens before shipping doses internationally.

We could actually face two delays: one from being at the back of the line in terms of countries who signed agreements to buy the vaccines and the other from Health Canada delaying approval. "They raise serious questions about these contracts that have been signed".

Mr. Trudeau said Canada doesn't have "any domestic production capacity for vaccines".

At the same time, "we've begun to invest once again in ensuring that Canada will have domestic vaccine production capacity because we never want to be caught short again, without the ability to support Canadians directly", Trudeau said. "You can't just say well, we'll shut down the protein one, and we'll switch over to the mRNA". The company has said it is open to others manufacturing it, but that the technology is hard to transfer. But the manufacturing processes used for the two is so completely different.

Mr. Trudeau told reporters his government tried to offset Canada's manufacturing shortfall by striking deals with a "record" number of vaccine producers so that the country now has "one of the very best vaccine portfolios of any country around the world". "And most importantly, when will we start to receive the vaccine in our respective provinces?" "The combined population of countries ahead of Canada in the distribution line is nearly 2.5 billion people", Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole said in the House of Commons on Wednesday.

While the federal government plans for the next phase of the pandemic, the provinces are trying to ramp up testing capacity, critical to controlling the spread of COVID-19 in the meantime.

Health Canada has also recently authorized monoclonal antibody therapy for emergency use in helping treat COVID-19 infections, and Canada will begin receiving doses over the next three months.
