Summary

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.

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.
