Vaccine recipients in Prince Edward Island
Comparing the percentage of Islanders 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 Prince Edward Island
In Prince Edward Island (pop. 159,713), 147,518 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 132,966 are fully vaccinated.
|Islanders fully vaccinated||132,966 / 159,713||83.3%|
|Islanders who have received a vaccine||147,518 / 159,713||92.4%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
92.4% of Islanders have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 2nd overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- British Columbia is 1st, with 92.5% of its population vaccinated.
- Newfoundland and Labrador is 3rd, with 90.2% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to British Columbia, Prince Edward Island would have to give 160 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 Islanders who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Islanders who have received both doses.
