All hands are on deck at one Toronto vaccination clinic where surgeons and students alike are working together to inoculate as many people as possible in an effort to contain a tidal wave of new COVID-19 infections.
It's been a bad week for Ontario's vaccine rollout. Multiple clinics around the GTA have said that they are either temporarily shutting down or no longer taking bookings because they don't have enough doses to vaccinate people.
The point man for Canada's vaccine rollout is aiming to ensure provinces aren't left scrambling when doses don't arrive as planned, as Ontario reported a record number of new daily COVID-19 infections.

Johnson & Johnson's single-dose COVID-19 vaccine has hit a stumbling block in the United States as regulators begin investigating reports of blood clots, weeks before the first shipment of the jabs are expected to arrive in Canada.
