  • Yukon is 2nd, with 103.9% of its population vaccinated.

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.
