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), 9,412,085 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 1,796,782 are fully vaccinated.
|Ontarians fully vaccinated||1,796,782 / 14,733,119||12.2%|
|Ontarians who have received a vaccine||9,412,085 / 14,733,119||63.9%|
|Days passed in 2021||165 / 365||45.2%|
63.9% 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 64.4% of its population vaccinated.
- Manitoba is 7th, with 60.6% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Nova Scotia, Ontario would have to give 73,666 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.
