Vaccines for COVID-19: Shipments and deliveries

On this page

Distributing and allocating vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines will be available to everyone in Canada who are recommended to get the vaccine by federal, provincial and territorial public health bodies. Doses of the vaccines will be distributed in Canada in phases, which began in December 2020. Assuming the continued supply of safe and effective vaccines, it's expected there will be enough vaccines to immunize everyone for whom vaccines are approved and recommended. We anticipate this will be accomplished by September of 2021.

The vaccine distribution table describes the quantities of COVID-19 vaccines that have been delivered to provinces and territories to date. This table is updated weekly.

The vaccine allocation tables describe the allocations of vaccine that are forecasted to be available for provinces and territories over the next number of weeks. These tables are updated as the quantities of available vaccine and the timing of future deliveries are confirmed. Fluctuations from week to week are possible. Allocation forecasts are therefore subject to change on short notice. The allocation tables reflect forecasted allocations for provinces and territories as of March 26, 2021.
