Vaccine recipients in Ontario
Comparing the percentage of Ontarians 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 Ontario
In Ontario (pop. 14,733,119), 12,844,570 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 11,306,219 are fully vaccinated.
|Ontarians fully vaccinated||11,306,219 / 14,733,119||76.7%|
|Ontarians who have received a vaccine||12,844,570 / 14,733,119||87.2%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
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.
“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.
