Canada Commits $220 Million to Global Vaccine Access

The federal government announced on Friday that it is joining COVAX - the COVID Vaccine Global Access Facility.  COVAX is a collaborative global effort established to deliver fair, equitable and timely access to vaccines to all participating countries. Canada has committed $220 million to COVAX for procurement of vaccines for Canadians and an additional $220 million to COVAX AMC to make possible equitable distribution of vaccines to middle- and lower-income countries that cannot fully afford to pay for COVID-19 vaccines themselves.

As stated in the announcement, "...We cannot beat this virus in Canada unless we end it everywhere."
