The number of people who have been vaccinated so far is 478 733 and the vaccination of people aged 60 and older is expected to kick off on Monday.
The country is entering a third wave, with many provinces recording an increase in cases and hospitalisations in recent days.

He said the number of cases in the country's economic heart had doubled between the start and end of the week.
