Summary

77.5% of Ontarians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 8th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • Alberta is 7th, with 78.1% of its population vaccinated.
  • Saskatchewan is 9th, with 77.3% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to Alberta, Ontario would have to give 88,399 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.
