In this story map, we show how geographic visualization of behavioural, socioeconomic and demographic data related to vaccine uptake can help us understand where and how to target vaccination efforts going forward.
Canada is showing good progress in its effort to vaccinate as much of the population as possible against SARS-CoV-2, better known as COVID-19. As of August 4, more than 49 million doses of approved COVID-19 vaccines have been administered across Canada. To date, 72% of the Canadian population has received at least one dose, and approximately 49% has received the full two doses. However, Canadian vaccination rates have been declining across the country, leaving many vulnerable to exposure. Maximizing vaccine coverage is Canada's best strategy to prevent future outbreaks of COVID-19 caused by emerging variants.
