Last updated:


87.2% of Ontarians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 6th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • Nova Scotia is 5th, with 88.2% of its population vaccinated.
  • Alberta is 7th, with 87.1% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to Nova Scotia, Ontario would have to give 147,331 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 Ontarians who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Ontarians who have received both doses.
