Figure 2 — Vaccine rollout data by region

In Canada, we are hoping to have around 45-55% of Canadians vaccinated by Canada Day (50% of the way through the year). In essense, we want the percentage of days passed to be similar to the percentage of the population vaccinated.

Measuring “vaccinated”

“Vaccinated” is a little ambiguous. Both vaccines currently used in Canada require 2 doses (several weeks apart) to be fully effective. However, receiving 1 dose is partially effective, and indicates how quickly we are dispensing vaccines.

  • The larger number tracks Canadians who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Canadians who have received both doses.
