OTTAWA -- Canada is planning to contribute up to 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries, including previously-announced funding to the COVAX global vaccine-sharing initiative, according to government source.
The sharing of doses will happen once Canadas domestic vaccine rollout is complete, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau set to unveil more details during todays G7 meeting in the U.K.
(The government appears to have pushed out news of vaccine contributions sooner than planned, because of claim circulating today that Canada was only member of G7 that hadnt committed to plan for the G7 nations to provide 1 billion doses. )
