TORONTO -- Canada has begun its largest mass vaccination program in history with COVID-19 inoculations getting underway across the provinces and territories.

The country has secured more than 400 million vaccine doses from multiple manufacturers, including Pfizer and Moderna. These are the only two COVID-19 vaccines currently approved in Canada.

As the country enters this new phase of the ongoing fight against COVID-19, is tracking the daily and cumulative vaccine doses administered in Canada, and across the provinces and territories, by surveying the data from public health units. The interactive map outlines the number of COVID-19 doses distributed as a percentage of the country's population.



On Jan. 28, Ontario issued a significant correction to its vaccination data. According to officials, the number of completed vaccinations was inadvertently doubled. Officials said "the number of doses administered to achieve full vaccination" was counted rather than the number of people vaccinated.

As of Jan. 25, 2021, percentage of population vaccinated is based on the number of people who have received at least one dose.

Provincial and territorial data is collected from official government websites, news releases and press conferences.

Percentage of population vaccinated is based on the number of people who have received at least one dose.

Saskatchewan has stated that its official distribution percentage is over 100% "due to efficiencies in drawing extra doses from vials of vaccine received."

Distribution data is updated less frequently than dose data, which might result in more doses administered than a province has officially received. Vaccine distribution numbers are currently based on this federal government source, which was last updated on Feb. 19. Distribution numbers are currently accurate "as of February 18, 2021".

The interactive chart breaks down the percentage of the population that has been vaccinated, the total number of first and second doses administered, as well as how many shots Canada has received from manufacturers.

The chart also outlines the number of inoculations in each province and territory, including first and second doses, in addition to the number of vaccines allotted to each province.

Due to a difference in data source, the percentage of Canadians vaccinated will appear higher in the world charts below than it does in our detailed Canadian data above.

World vaccination data is compiled by Our World In Data, and does not currently differentiate between first and second doses. They note that their total dose numbers “may not equal the total number of people vaccinated, depending on the specific dose regime.”

This means that individuals in the following dataset are likely being double-counted when they receive their second dose, which could cause an exaggeration in the total percentage of people being vaccinated.

For world data, percentage is based on total vaccinations. Our World In Data notes that the total number of vaccination doses administered "is counted as a single dose, and may not equal the total number of people vaccinated, depending on the specific dose regime (e.g. people receive multiple doses)."
