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), 11,421,523 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 10,868,680 are fully vaccinated.
|Ontarians fully vaccinated||10,868,680 / 14,733,119||73.8%|
|Ontarians who have received a vaccine||11,421,523 / 14,733,119||77.5%|
|Days passed in 2021||294 / 365||80.5%|
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.
“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.
