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), 7,423,811 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 6,641,476 are fully vaccinated.
|Quebecers fully vaccinated||6,641,476 / 8,575,779||77.4%|
|Quebecers who have received a vaccine||7,423,811 / 8,575,779||86.6%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
86.6% of Quebecers have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 8th overall for Canada’s 10 provinces.
- Alberta is 7th, with 87.1% of its population vaccinated.
- Manitoba is 9th, with 85.7% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Alberta, Quebec would have to give 42,879 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.
