Summary

92.5% of British Columbians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 1st overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

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.
