Summary

64.4% of Nova Scotians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 5th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

To catch up to Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia would have to give 14,687 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 Nova Scotians who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Nova Scotians who have received both doses.
