"No one, who wants a vaccine, will be left behind. No community will miss out. Just yesterday, the Canadian Rangers and members of the Canadian Armed Forces began working alongside Ornge in Ontario. They're currently supporting vaccinations in the first eight of 32 priority communities of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation," he said. 

"In many cases, these rangers are helping out in their own communities to ensure everyone has the support they need. No matter where you are, if you want the vaccine, we'll make sure you get one," the prime minister added.

During the briefing Trudeau also announced the federal government was working to ensure Canadian production of the vaccine.
