Doses administered

This page provides information on the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses that have been administered in Canada by jurisdiction, dose number and vaccine product. The number of vaccine doses administered is not the same as the number of people vaccinated.

We update information on the number of COVID-19 doses administered across Canada at different times:

reported since December 14, 2020

We update this number every weekday. Most provinces and territories do not update their numbers every day (see data sources). Information is subject to change and may differ from provincial and territorial reports (see limitations).

As most jurisdictions have reduced or stopped their regular update on doses administered on their website, the information on the number of doses administered the previous day has been removed.

About COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination

Vaccination programs, primary series and booster doses

Vaccination programs

  • COVID-19 vaccination began in Canada on December 14, 2020.
  • 7 COVID-19 vaccines are currently approved for use in Canada.
  • The National Advisory Committee on Immunization’s (NACI) recommendations on the use of COVID-19 vaccines can be found in the latest NACI statements.
  • People 5 years and older without contraindications to the vaccine are currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

Primary series

Booster doses

NACI recommends a booster dose of an mRNA vaccine or Novavax Nuvaxovid® at least 6 months after the primary series is completed for members of the following populations.

  • A booster should be offered to:
    • adults 18 years of age and older
    • adults living in long-term care homes for seniors or other congregate living settings that provide care for seniors
    • people who completed their series with only viral vector vaccines (the AstraZeneca Vaxzevria/COVISHIELD or Janssen COVID-19 vaccines)
    • adults in or from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities
    • all frontline health care workers who have direct in-person contact with patients
    • adolescents 12 to 17 years of age:
      • with an underlying medical condition at high risk of severe illness due to COVID-19 (including those who are immunocompromised and who received a 3-dose primary series)
      • who are residents of congregate living settings (e.g., shelters, group homes, quarters for migrant workers, correctional facilities)
      • who belong to racialized and/or marginalized communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19
  • A booster may be offered to:
    • adolescents 12 to 17 years of age

NACI recommends that jurisdictions prepare for the rapid deployment of a second COVID-19 vaccine booster dose program over the coming weeks prioritizing the certain populations.
