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), 11,094,649 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 10,309,713 are fully vaccinated.
|Ontarians fully vaccinated||10,309,713 / 14,733,119||70%|
|Ontarians who have received a vaccine||11,094,649 / 14,733,119||75.3%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
75.3% 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 77% of its population vaccinated.
- Manitoba is 8th, with 73.2% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to New Brunswick, Ontario would have to give 250,463 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.
