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), 3,096,529 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 2,720,223 are fully vaccinated.
|Albertans fully vaccinated||2,720,223 / 4,428,112||61.4%|
|Albertans who have received a vaccine||3,096,529 / 4,428,112||69.9%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
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.
“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.
