Summary

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.

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 Quebecers who have received at least 1 dose.
  • The smaller number tracks Quebecers who have received both doses.
