The majority of Canadians over the age of 16 have now received at least one dose of a covid-19 vaccine. This includes the majority of adults in Ontario, Quebec, BC, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, NWT, Yukon, and Nunavut.
Though most Canadians are still waiting for their second dose, even just one dose provides a significant amount of protection. A recent CDC study found that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are over 80% effective after just one dose.
Thanks to the massive vaccination effort, new covid-19 cases are now declining across Canada.
