Last updated:


69.9% of Albertans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 9th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • Manitoba is 8th, with 73.2% of its population vaccinated.
  • Saskatchewan is 10th, with 68.2% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to Manitoba, Alberta would have to give 146,128 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.
