Nova Scotia's premier says the province is ready and equipped to distribute a potential COVID-19 vaccine once it becomes available.
This comes as Health Canada says Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine candidate could be approved in Canada next month.
Stephen McNeil says the province already has the appropriate infrastructure in place.
"We have a committee that's a cross-government committee that ensures we have the appropriate infrastructure in place," said McNeil. "We're looking to make sure we have the appropriate freezers we require, the extra supplies that would be required, syringes, swabs, making sure that they're all in place."
McNeil said the things they can control as a government are well underway.
However, he believes the federal government should provide more clarity on when the vaccine would be distributed and who would get it first.
