Summary

66% of British Columbians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 3rd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

To catch up to New Brunswick, British Columbia would have to give 10,292 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 British Columbians who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks British Columbians who have received both doses.
