Summary

59.3% of Islanders have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 8th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.

  • Manitoba is 7th, with 60.6% of its population vaccinated.
  • Alberta is 9th, with 59.1% of its population vaccinated.

To catch up to Manitoba, Prince Edward Island would have to give 2,076 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 Islanders who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Islanders who have received both doses.
