Pfizer and partner BioNTech SE had hoped to ship out 100 million doses of their vaccine by the end of the year, that has now reportedly been cut to estimates of about 50 million.

On the heels of the United Kingdom approving Pfizer's vaccine for use, anticipation has been building in Canada for when people in this country could be authorized to begin getting vaccinated for the novel coronavirus.

Minister of Health Patty Hajdu said Health Canada regulators are continuing to review the data of two potential vaccines and decisions are expected soon. They are now reviewing the data from Pfizer and working closely with the manufacturer.

The U.K. pre-ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

"Everyone anticipates that when we test this first in adolescents, then older children, then the real small kids, that the Covid vaccine will work", said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University and an adviser on vaccines to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We have some data that these vaccines are going to stimulate T cell and antibodies which could be long lasting".

The partnership will also make the COVID-19 vaccine available to employees who have not yet gotten vaccinated.

"Ultimately, each provincial and territorial government is responsible for deciding how to deploy COVID-19 vaccines within their jurisdiction and immunizing Canadians, with the support of provincial and territorial health care workers", said Dr. Njoo.

In the meantime, the country's distribution plan is nearing finalization.

"The details of the Armed Forces' plan become firm when we understand what support will be required by the provinces and territories", Vance said in an interview Wednesday.

"They have the systems". Some of the more complex vaccine delivery logistics, we are there to support them. At least one of them is in every province.

Vulnerable folks, including health care workers and those aged 80 and above, will be granted first dibs.

"I think Canadians can expect some relief in the spring and summer months that there will be more access to regular vaccines", Hajdu said. The more complex ones, the Pfizer and Moderna, those vaccines are hard to get around. You really want to be able to tell them clearly how you might feel for 24 or 48 hours after you receive the vaccine. "None of those have been approved yet, but we have two more traditional vaccines".

Modifications to the vaccine production lines in both the USA and Europe are now complete, Rose said.

"We really scrutinise the data very carefully to guarantee to the American public that this is a safe and efficacious vaccine", he said.

"What we have, which is very important, is a health care community that's working together".

Speaking to BBC News, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam said that would be possible if everyone on the first priority list took the vaccine and it was highly effective.

It's not my job to give you a magic number because it all depends on how quickly the vaccine is rolled out, whether the people called forward to get the vaccine come forward.
