In the worldwide distribution facility Covax, Canada chose to supply roughly 18 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca. The approach is partially designed to address the deficit created by the disastrous second wave of the epidemic this summer by Indian Covid's producers in their failure to meet that supply. But in political circles at home the Canadian decision to offer Covax AZ vaccinations was criticised because of safety problems because the use of jab in the country was restricted.
17.7 million AZ doses will be sent immediately to the Covax global Covid vaccination distribution centre, according to an upfront purchase arrangement negotiated by Canada. The statement was made on Monday by Karina Gould, Minister of International Development, and Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement.
According to a statement released by Global Affairs Canada, the vaccination doses would be "controlled through the newly-funded Covax mechanism." Gould informed the CBC News that exports will commence within a couple of weeks and said it was an attempt to offset the deficiency resulting from the failure of Indian producers to satisfy the outside demand.
Anand said, “With nearly 55 million doses in Canada and millions more arriving weekly, we continue to ensure that the needs of Canadians for Covid-19 vaccines are met. In addition, as we are now able to donate excess vaccines, the contribution to Covax of close to 18 million doses will help to meet international needs and end this pandemic.”
She said, “One of the reasons Covax has been struggling is because AstraZeneca is one of the vaccines being manufactured in India and is being used widely within India right now.”
