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), 3,395,649 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 497,932 are fully vaccinated.
|British Columbians fully vaccinated||497,932 / 5,145,851||9.7%|
|British Columbians who have received a vaccine||3,395,649 / 5,145,851||66%|
|Days passed in 2021||165 / 365||45.2%|
66% of British Columbians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 3rd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- New Brunswick is 2nd, with 66.2% of its population vaccinated.
- Newfoundland and Labrador is 4th, with 65.9% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to New Brunswick, British Columbia would have to give 10,292 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.
