CBC News published this video item, entitled “Temporary Pfizer delays are ‘behind us,’ procurement minister says” – below is their description.

Federal Procurement Minister Anita Anand says Canadians can soon expect the country’s COVID-19 inoculation campaign to pick up steam after Canada’s vaccine rollout was temporarily beset by delivery delays and reduced shipments of doses.

“The temporary delays that we have seen are largely behind us,” Anand said Sunday on Rosemary Barton Live.

“The delays that we saw from Europe, from Pfizer, for example, were very disappointing and very concerning to me and to our government. But I have received assurances from the vaccine manufacturers that those delays are temporary and that we are very much on track,” the minister added.
