During a COVID-19 update on Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canada had reached an agreement with Pfizer to buy an additional 20 million doses of their COVID-19 vaccine.

“We are on track to have every Canadian who wants a vaccine receive one by September,” he said.

Trudeau also announced that the Canada-U.S. border will remain closed until at least Feb. 21 in an effort to curb rising cases of the virus, stating “This is an important decision, and one that will keep people on both sides of the border safe."

Federal ministers held a COVID-19 update following Trudeau's briefing, where Minister of Public Services and Procurement Anita Anand said Canadians could expect to see a “dramatic acceleration” in the pace of scheduled COVID-19 vaccine deliveries once the country enters the second and third quarter of the year.

Canada added 6,847 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, pushing the total number of infections to 667,672. Health officials also reported 119 new fatalities associated with COVID-19, meaning 17,086 people have died in the country to date.
