How Canada rose to the top for 1st doses of COVID-19 vaccine | CBC News

His frequent praise for Canada can be found on Twitter, including a recent tweet lauding the country for "pulling away, setting a new pace and ceiling for 1st dose vaccinations of major countries.".

But other experts note it's actually a confluence of factors that has put Canada on track to become the world leader when it comes to the share of its population inoculated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. .

According to online research publication Our World in Data, Canada has just nudged out Israel to top the global pack, having doled out at least one dose to more than 64 per cent of its citizens!

Israel, now trailing Canada, has given first doses to 63 per cent of its citizens.

Oh Canada.<br>Your aggressive 1st dose vaccination strategy is looking good.

"So when vaccines are actually coming into the country, we can get them into the arms of citizens very, very quickly — and that's what you're watching right now.".

"This means that Canada now has one of the lowest ratio of first to second doses in the world," he said.

At the start of the global vaccination campaign, Canada lagged behind other countries.

By that date, an average of 188,000 people were receiving a dose every day in Canada: a figure that is now at 375,000, or one per cent of the country's population, he said. This makes Canada the country with the highest pace in the G7 — on par with the U.S.

Bogoch credited that in part to the federal government's access to vaccines, saying "thankfully, we have truly millions and millions and millions of vaccines coming into the country now."?

For example, Canada will be receiving at least 55 million COVID-19 vaccine doses by the end of July, Public Services and Procurement Minister Anita Anand announced earlier this week.

"The major factor is really that we've been reliant on other people supplying us vaccines for a long period of time," said Jason Kindrachuk, an assistant professor and Canada Research Chair in emerging viruses at the University of Manitoba.

"We didn't have that ability to pull any doses within Canada to start doing any dispensing.".
