OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada has signed a deal with Pfizer Inc to receive 2.9 million doses of their pediatric COVID-19 vaccine shortly after it is approved for use by Health Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday.

"We will be receiving enough doses in Canada to ensure that all children in Canada, aged five to 11, can receive the vaccine," said Trudeau. The vaccine is currently being reviewed by Health Canada.
