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), 4,758,937 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 4,073,643 are fully vaccinated.
|British Columbians fully vaccinated||4,073,643 / 5,145,851||79.2%|
|British Columbians who have received a vaccine||4,758,937 / 5,145,851||92.5%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
92.5% of British Columbians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 1st overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Prince Edward Island is 2nd, with 92.4% of its population 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.
