The federal government says it expects Canada to receive around 1.9 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine this week, including its very first shipment of shots from Johnson & Johnson.
The government says the country will receive about 300,000 of the single-dose jabs in the coming days, in addition to more than 1 million Pfizer-BioNTech shots and around 650,000 doses from Moderna.
But Canada is not currently expecting any more deliveries of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
Those doses have been in heavy demand after the eligible age for the shot was dropped to 40-plus in several provinces.
Federal Public Procurement Minister Anita Anand said last week that Canada is in talks with the U-S for some of its AstraZeneca supply after President Joe Biden suggested it might share the shots.
The U-S has stockpiled tens of millions of AstraZeneca shots, but health officials there have not approved the vaccine for use.
