Description (Dublin Core)

Canada will receive up to 249,000 doses of the vaccine by the end of the month. This will vaccinate up to 124,500 people as a person has to take two doses for it to be effective.
However, it's up to the provinces and territories to determine how the doses will be distributed.
Indigenous communities are on the priority list but they will have to patient, since there aren't enough vaccines and there are difficulties in distributing it to communities who do not have the proper facilities to store it.
Most Indigenous communities are disproportionally affected by the disease. First Nations people in Manitoba living off reserve make up 65 per cent of the overall First Nations COVID cases in the province.
