COVID-19 vaccine tracker: How many people in Canada have received shots?
As COVID-19 testing numbers have increased, so too has the sentiment that the boosted swabbing capacity is the reason for the “second wave.”
Experts warn that that line of thinking, one that has been adopted by U.S. President Donald Trump, is misguided and that the "lagging indicators" of hospitalization and deaths are still to come.
“The math doesn’t lie. This [second wave] is not a reflection of only increased testing," said CTV Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Abdu Sharkawy told CTV News Channel on Tuesday.
The first COVID-19 vaccines were injected into the arms of Canadians on Dec. 14, 2020, just nine months after the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus a global pandemic.
Canada has since secured more than 400 million vaccine doses from multiple manufacturers, including 60 million from Pfizer and Moderna -- the only two COVID-19 vaccines currently approved in the country.
The landmark vaccination effort is focusing first on Canadians who have been hardest hit by the virus such as staff and residents of long-term care homes and frontline health-care workers, but governments plan to expand vaccine distribution as more doses become approved and available.
As the country enters this new phase of the ongoing fight against COVID-19, CTVNews.ca is tracking the daily and cumulative vaccine doses administered across Canada by surveying the data from public health units.
