Vaccination campaign to fight COVID-19
There is a new section on the CBC site that allows us to follow the coronavirus vaccination process by province and territory for Canada, and for every country in the world. It should be noted that each province and territory is responsible for planning and executing its own vaccination program, as doses are distributed through Ottawa. This roll-out is done in an equitable manner, in proportion to population.
