Daily update of Ontario’s Covid-19 Vaccination Campaign

With the largest vaccination campaign underway, the province has administered more than 19.8 million doses into the arms of Ontarians. On August 8, numbers released by the Ministry of Health show health officials administered 46,970 vaccine doses on Saturday, down from 61,041 doses the day prior.

This graph represents Ontario’s progress thus far in the vaccination campaign (see above). The dark blue bar represents the population of Ontario, an estimated 14.5 million. Health officials suggest roughly 80% of the population would need to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19.

So far, 10,544,542 people have received at least one or both shots of the vaccine, 72.8% of the entire population (green segment).

A total of 9,318,953 people are fully inoculated against the virus. That number represents about 64.3% of the Ontario population, (yellow segment).
