Vaccine recipients in Quebec
Comparing the percentage of Quebecers 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 Quebec
In Quebec (pop. 8,575,779), 6,702,055 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 6,227,089 are fully vaccinated.
|Quebecers fully vaccinated||6,227,089 / 8,575,779||72.6%|
|Quebecers who have received a vaccine||6,702,055 / 8,575,779||78.2%|
|Days passed in 2021||264 / 365||72.3%|
78.2% of Quebecers have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 5th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- British Columbia is 4th, with 78.3% of its population vaccinated.
- New Brunswick is 6th, with 77% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to British Columbia, Quebec would have to give 8,576 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 Quebecers who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Quebecers who have received both doses.
