Canada has now given enough COVID-19 vaccine doses to cover 1 per cent of the population


The number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Canada has surpassed one per cent of the country’s total population.

There had been 387,899 vaccinations given in Canada as of end-of-day Tuesday, according to data compiled by CTV News. That’s equivalent to 1.021 per cent of the population.

That does not mean more than one per cent of Canadians have been vaccinated, as some of those 387,899 vaccinations have been recipients’ second doses. The two vaccines approved for use in Canada both involve two shots, given weeks apart.
