On Wednesday, the Government of Canada announced that it had entered an agreement to purchase ‘millions of doses’ of future COVID-19 vaccines. This was secured with two different bio-med and pharma companies- Pfizer and Moderna. Let’s check it out!

Basically, the government is betting that one of the two companies will develop a vaccine before anyone else. And because of that, they want to secure doses for Canadians across the country. But, they are also in talks with other companies as well. Hedging their bets, we like it.
