Here's the background on Canada's vaccination rollout

The first shipment of vaccine doses arrived in Quebec on Dec. 13, and Canada's vaccination program formally began soon after with the first vaccinations in Ontario and Quebec.

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the country has secured contracts with Pfizer-BioNTech for up to 76 million vaccine doses; Moderna for 44 million; AstraZeneca for 20 million; Verity Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc./Serum Institute of India (in collaboration with AstraZeneca Canada Inc.) for two million; and Johnson & Johnson for up to 38 million doses.

While the federal government is responsible for distributing vaccines to each jurisdiction across the country, each province and territory is responsible for its own vaccine rollout. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised that every Canadian who wants a shot would be vaccinated by the end of September.

Which vaccines have been approved so far?

Health Canada announced the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 9, 2020. On Dec. 23, it approved a second vaccine, from Moderna

On Feb. 26, 2021, Health Canada approved the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine

On March 5, 2021, Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine became the first single-dose vaccine approved for use in Canada. 

Notes:

May 20: The Canada map was updated to show first and second dose numbers for the provinces and territories. Quebec's second dose vaccine numbers were added. The chart on vaccine doses distributed now also includes the percentage of doses used and the story text was updated to include additional information on Canada's vaccine rollout. 

March 26: The page was updated to include the percentage of people in Canada given at least one dose. A map and table showing global vaccinations was also added.

Jan. 28: Officials in Ontario announced an error in their previous reporting of completed vaccinations. This resulted in the number of people completely vaccinated in the province decreasing by about half.

Jan. 14: Separate totals of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccine doses distributed to each province were removed. This data is currently only available weekly, with many provinces and territories not providing breakdowns in their updates. This caused the numbers to not align with the combined totals distributed to the provinces and territories, which are updated more frequently.
