The issue for Canadians was that Pfizer and Moderna basically stopped delivering vaccine for several weeks. Evidently Pfizer-Biontech had to stop production in their Belgian factory while work was done to increase capacity while Moderna from several news reports ran into issues with material supply and the EU attempting to control how much can be exported before EU member states are supplied with vaccine.

Add in that in Canada, vaccinating the residents in long term care where the majority of the deaths was occurring was a priority.

Another issue which may be hitting soon is that the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine use has been halted in South Africa since it appeared to offer "minimal protection" against mild and moderate cases of the South African variant of the Covid-19 virus.
