Canada said last week that it had taken a cautious first step and was ready to relax the quarantine protocol for fully vaccinated citizens returning home from early July.
The regions deemed Delta hotpots are Halton, Peel, Porcupine, Toronto, Waterloo, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph, as well as newly identified hotspots, Hamilton, Simcoe-Muskoka and Durham. Some smaller nations, like Malta and Gibraltar, have higher first dose rates than Canada.
Ontario has added more public health units to the list of Delta variant hot spots and adults in those 10 regions who received their first shot of an mRNA vaccine on or before May 30 will be eligible to book a second dose starting next week.
Over two million Ontarians have now received both doses of the vaccine and the City of Toronto announced that 20 per cent of residents are now fully vaccinated. These vaccines will help ensure that individuals who are eligible for a first or second dose can book an appointment as soon as possible. Our World in Data suggests only 13% of Canadians are fully vaccinated - which pales in comparison to Israel, the United Kingdom, and Chile. "Depending on where you are and what the supply situation is, if the second dose of mRNA vaccine is the other one.that is OK as well".
It can be recalled that Nigeria received about 4 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine from the COVAX initiative out of the expected 16 million doses.
