Last week, clinics across the country ran out of the vaccine. Doctor David Butler-Jones, head of the Public Health Agency of Canada, says as recently as a few weeks ago, officials had no way of knowing the demand would be so huge.

Officials are continuing to stress that the vaccine will be available to everyone who wants or needs it, by mid to late December.
