Vaccine recipients in Alberta
Comparing the percentage of Albertans who have received vaccines vs. the number of days passed in 2021.
(We’re hoping for ~40-50% vaccinated by Canada Day.)
Figure 1 — Vaccine data for Alberta
In Alberta (pop. 4,428,112), 2,616,440 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 767,586 are fully vaccinated.
|Albertans fully vaccinated||767,586 / 4,428,112||17.3%|
|Albertans who have received a vaccine||2,616,440 / 4,428,112||59.1%|
|Days passed in 2021||165 / 365||45.2%|
59.1% of Albertans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 9th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Prince Edward Island is 8th, with 59.3% of its population vaccinated.
- Saskatchewan is 10th, with 58.6% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Prince Edward Island, Alberta would have to give 8,856 vaccine doses to new people.
“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.
