Vaccine recipients in Nova Scotia
Comparing the percentage of Nova Scotians 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 Nova Scotia
In Nova Scotia (pop. 979,115), 772,163 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 714,101 are fully vaccinated.
|Nova Scotians fully vaccinated||714,101 / 979,115||72.9%|
|Nova Scotians who have received a vaccine||772,163 / 979,115||78.9%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
78.9% of Nova Scotians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 3rd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Newfoundland and Labrador is 2nd, with 80.8% of its population vaccinated.
- British Columbia is 4th, with 78.3% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia would have to give 18,603 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 Nova Scotians who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Nova Scotians who have received both doses.
