80.8% of Newfoundlanders have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 2nd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

To catch up to Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador would have to give 3,647 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 Newfoundlanders who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Newfoundlanders who have received both doses.
