Vaccine recipients in Newfoundland and Labrador
Comparing the percentage of Newfoundlanders 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 Newfoundland and Labrador
In Newfoundland and Labrador (pop. 520,998), 421,101 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 382,434 are fully vaccinated.
|Newfoundlanders fully vaccinated||382,434 / 520,998||73.4%|
|Newfoundlanders who have received a vaccine||421,101 / 520,998||80.8%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
80.8% of Newfoundlanders have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 2nd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Prince Edward Island is 1st, with 81.5% of its population vaccinated.
- Nova Scotia is 3rd, with 78.9% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador would have to give 3,647 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 Newfoundlanders who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Newfoundlanders who have received both doses.
