Vaccine recipients in Northwest Territories
Comparing the percentage of Northerners 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 Northwest Territories
In Northwest Territories (pop. 45,074), 35,455 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 33,302 are fully vaccinated.
|Northerners fully vaccinated||33,302 / 45,074||73.9%|
|Northerners who have received a vaccine||35,455 / 45,074||78.7%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
78.7% of Northerners have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 2nd overall for Canada’s 3 territories.
- Yukon is 1st, with 79.6% of its population vaccinated.
- Nunavut is 3rd, with 61.4% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Yukon, Northwest Territories would have to give 406 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 Northerners who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Northerners who have received both doses.
