Seems like America First is catching on.
It seems to me that I’d expect a gov’t to take care of their own people before trying to take care of everyone else.

We need more fried chicken?
Weirdly, Canada, despite having contracted for more doses per resident than any other nation, lags in actually getting the stuff. I wonder if that’s because none of the major vaccines is actually manufactured there?
And not just a few more doses. Contracts outside of Covax sharing are enough for every Canadian, even those getting shots in Florida, to receive 10 doses.
What I don’t understand is why they have so little vaccine NOW despite having contracted for a huge amount of it.
All your vaccine are belong to us.
Biden blocked the export of vaccines to Canada until the US supply is sufficient, so I’m sure that is a major part of it. I’m also not sure if the Canadian government was as short sighted as the EU, who negotiated a reduced price (like $14 per dose vs $20 per dose) but at the expense of being later in line for Moderna.
