Summary

45.5% of Nunavummiuq have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 3rd overall for Canada’s 3 territories.

To catch up to Northwest Territories, Nunavut would have to give 8,446 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 Nunavummiuq who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Nunavummiuq who have received both doses.
