Vaccine recipients in Nunavut
Comparing the percentage of Nunavummiuq 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 Nunavut
In Nunavut (pop. 39,285), 24,131 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 21,216 are fully vaccinated.
|Nunavummiuq fully vaccinated||21,216 / 39,285||54%|
|Nunavummiuq who have received a vaccine||24,131 / 39,285||61.4%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
61.4% of Nunavummiuq have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 3rd overall for Canada’s 3 territories.
- Northwest Territories is 2nd, with 78.7% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Northwest Territories, Nunavut would have to give 6,796 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 Nunavummiuq who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Nunavummiuq who have received both doses.
