71.2% of Ontarians have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 7th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • New Brunswick is 6th, with 72.8% of its population vaccinated.
  • Manitoba is 8th, with 69.4% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to New Brunswick, Ontario would have to give 235,730 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.
