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.

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 Northerners who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Northerners who have received both doses.
