Vaccine recipients in Yukon
Comparing the percentage of Yukoners 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 Yukon
In Yukon (pop. 42,176), 43,807 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 33,868 are fully vaccinated.
|Yukoners fully vaccinated||33,868 / 42,176||80.3%|
|Yukoners who have received a vaccine||43,807 / 42,176||103.9%|
|Days passed in 2021||342 / 365||93.7%|
103.9% of Yukoners have received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is 2nd overall for Canada’s 3 territories.
- Northwest Territories is 1st, with 116.2% of its population vaccinated.
- Nunavut is 3rd, with 71.5% of its population vaccinated.
To catch up to Northwest Territories, Yukon would have to give 5,188 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 Yukoners who have received at least 1 dose.
- The smaller number tracks Yukoners who have received both doses.
