The first COVID-19 vaccines were injected into the arms of Canadians on Dec. 14, 2020, just nine months after the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus a global pandemic.
Canada has since secured more than 400 million vaccine doses from multiple manufacturers, including 60 million from Pfizer and Moderna — the only two COVID-19 vaccines currently approved in the country.
The landmark vaccination effort is focusing first on Canadians who have been hardest hit by the virus such as staff and residents of long-term care homes and frontline health-care workers, but governments plan to expand vaccine distribution as more doses become approved and available.
As the country enters this new phase of the ongoing fight against COVID-19, CTVNews.ca is tracking the daily and cumulative vaccine doses administered across Canada by surveying the data from public health units.
