An Important Change to Alberta's Population Data
Across the COVID19Tracker.ca website, we have always used official population estimates from Statistics Canada for calculations. This consistent approach allows for accurate, up-to-date data that can be compared between provinces. However, the province of Alberta does not use Statistics Canada population data in their vaccine calculations and instead relies on internal estimates and projections.
Alberta's internal estimates are larger than the most recent population estimates available from Statistics Canada. This means that some of our metrics, such as "% of people 12+ in Alberta", have been higher than what was shared by the Alberta government.
Starting June 13th, we've changed population values used to calculate Alberta's eligible (12+) population percentage to match the percentage published by the province of Alberta. While this means that values will now match those posted by Alberta, it also means that any comparisons between provinces using eligible (12+) population values must be performed with caution. Provincial population estimates used for Alberta are from a different source and from a different date than other provinces. Data for all other provinces will continue to be from Statistics Canada's latest population estimates.

doses of approved COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in .
As begins their COVID-19 vaccination program, we're tracking doses administered in every region. new doses have been reported administered in today.
In total, doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to for administration. As of today, of doses delivered to have been administered.
The Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines require two doses, a number of weeks apart, for full efficacy. Consequently, we report both the total number of doses administered, and the total number of people who have been fully vaccinated. As of today, more than people from have received at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine. people from are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, having received both required doses.
Our data is aggregated by volunteers exclusively from official government sources, updated throughout the day in near real-time. All of our data is freely available for use via our API or in CSV format. Find more information on the sources we use here.

Reopening MetricsSome provinces use adult (18+) vaccination rates in their plans to lift public health measures. These values reflect vaccinations in people over 18, and uses Statistics Canada's population values for those over 18.
The COVID-19 Tracker Canada project is an independent volunteer-run project that receives no formal funding. To ensure that we're able to continue to provide updates indefinitely, we're temporarily testing ads on some pages. If made permanent, this will allow us to cover the costs of site infrastructure and continue to expand data collection and visualizations into the future.Give Feedback
