Ottawa surpasses 100,000 residents fully vaccinated against COVID-19
OTTAWA -- Ottawa Public Health says more than 100,000 residents of Ottawa are now considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19, having received two doses of a vaccine.
In an update on its COVID-19 vaccination dashboard, OPH says 113,067 residents of Ottawa have received both doses, an increase of 21,945 since Friday.
This amounts to 11 per cent of the total population of the city.
Another 21,280 first doses were administered over the weekend, bringing Ottawa's total number of residents with at least one dose to 651,525.
Between June 6 and 12, 90,177 doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in Ottawa, eclipsing the previous record last week of 74,000 shots in arms.
Among adults, OPH says 73 per cent of the population 18 and older has had one dose and 13 per cent have had two.
This comes as Ontario shortens the eligibility for a second dose of AstraZeneca vaccine to eight weeks from 12. Anyone who received the AstraZeneca vaccine is also allowed to receive a dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as their second dose if AstraZeneca is unavailable. However, many residents said they could not book appointments Monday morning when the eligibility first expanded.
To date, 67,024 residents of Ottawa have received at least one dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and 3,276 have had two, up from 1,769 as of last Monday. Ottawa Public Health says someone who received AstraZeneca followed by Pfizer or Moderna is counted as having received two doses, but individuals who have received two different vaccine types are included in the totals of the fully vaccinated column according to the vaccine type of their second dose.
In other words, those 3,276 people with two shots of AstraZeneca have received both doses of that vaccine. Figures for how many people who received AstraZeneca as their first dose and another vaccine as their second dose are currently unavailable.
According to OPH data, 98 per cent of the city’s vaccine inventory has been administered as of Sunday evening. OPH does not have data on the number of doses sent to local pharmacies.
