Vaccine recipients in British Columbia
Comparing the percentage of British Columbians 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 British Columbia
In British Columbia (pop. 5,145,851), 4,029,982 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 3,681,324 are fully vaccinated.
|British Columbians fully vaccinated||3,681,324 / 5,145,851||71.5%|
|British Columbians who have received a vaccine||4,029,982 / 5,145,851||78.3%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
78.3% of British Columbians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 4th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Nova Scotia is 3rd, with 78.9% of its population vaccinated.
- Quebec is 5th, with 78.2% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Nova Scotia, British Columbia would have to give 30,875 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 British Columbians who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks British Columbians who have received both doses.
