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), 343,290 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 25,870 are fully vaccinated.
|Newfoundlanders fully vaccinated||25,870 / 520,998||5%|
|Newfoundlanders who have received a vaccine||343,290 / 520,998||65.9%|
|Days passed in 2021||165 / 365||45.2%|
65.9% of Newfoundlanders have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 4th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- British Columbia is 3rd, with 66% of its population vaccinated.
- Nova Scotia is 5th, with 64.4% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador would have to give 521 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.
