Summary

87.1% of Albertans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 7th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • Ontario is 6th, with 87.2% of its population vaccinated.
  • Quebec is 8th, with 86.6% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to Ontario, Alberta would have to give 4,428 vaccine doses to new people.

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