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), 863,166 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 793,905 are fully vaccinated.
|Nova Scotians fully vaccinated||793,905 / 979,115||81.1%|
|Nova Scotians who have received a vaccine||863,166 / 979,115||88.2%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
88.2% of Nova Scotians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 5th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Saskatchewan is 4th, with 88.6% of its population vaccinated.
- Ontario is 6th, with 87.2% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia would have to give 3,916 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.
