WASHINGTON, DC – Canada is going to get help securing more COVID-19 vaccines from our neighbours south of the border.

U.S. President Joe Biden said Wednesday afternoon that he recently spoke with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the issue.

Biden says his administration is going to help Canada find more doses as the White House looks at what to do with vaccines that aren’t currently in use across the U.S.

“We to be of some help and value to countries around the world. I’ve talked to neighbours. As a matter of fact I was on the phone for about a half hour today with the Prime Minister of Canada. We helped a little bit there. We’re try to help some more,” Biden said.
