Vaccine Safety (Canada)

Vaccines in Canada are closely monitored with a surveillance network and safety information is published on a regular basis.  The charts below show the latest safety data for the COVID-19 vaccines in Canada.  So far there have been no safety issues identified with approved COVID-19 vaccines and no deaths reported from the vaccine in Canada with over 1 million doses given.   More than 160 million doses have been given globally.  This data is updated on a weekly basis.  An adverse event is defined as any untoward medical occurrence which follows immunization and may not be causally related to usage of the vaccine.  An adverse event is considered serious if it results in death, is life-threatening, requires in-patient hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability, or results in a congenital anomaly/birth defect.  The most frequently reported serious adverse event was anaphylaxis.  The most frequently reported non-serious adverse events were pain at vaccination site, redness at site, swelling at site, warmth at site, and itching at site.









The following graph shows a comparison between the serious disease outcomes of people who get infected with COVID-19 (prolonged illness, hospitalization, ICU admission, ventilation, death) and the adverse event outcomes of people who get vaccinated (non-serious, serious, death).  If you are trying to decide whether taking the COVID-19 is worth the risk vs getting infected naturally, the math is extremely clear.  As you can see, the probability of having a serious disease outcome if you get infected with COVID-19 is hundreds or thousands of times higher than having a serious adverse event by taking the vaccine.  Data sources: COVID-19 disease outcome stats and prolonged illness stats.





Vaccine Dashboard (Canada, Ontario, Quebec)

The charts below try to estimate the current % of vaccine doses administered in the population for Canada, Ontario, and Quebec.  Ontario also provides data for the number of people who have complete vaccinations (eg. 2 doses). The graphs also show the vaccination rate over the last 7 days and then estimate based on that current rate, how many weeks it will take to vaccinate the target % and provide a date.  Over time as more vaccine is produced and additional vaccines are approved for use in Canada, hopefully this rate will increase rapidly and the dates will shorten quickly. Data source for Canada and Provinces vaccination rate, population, and current and forecast distribution of vaccine.   This data is updated daily.






































Vaccine Daily # Administered (Canada, Ontario, Quebec)

The first graph below shows the vaccination rate (last 7 days)  updated daily for 1st and 2nd doses. The second graph shows the 7-day rolling average of the daily # vaccines administered to people in Canada, Ontario, and Quebec. Data source for total doses Canada and Provinces and number of people fully vaccinated Canada and Provinces.


Vaccine Cumulative # Administered (Canada, Ontario, Quebec)

The graphs below show the cumulative # vaccines administered to people in Canada, Ontario, and Quebec. Data source for Canada and Provinces.


Vaccine Coverage (Ontario, Quebec)

The graph below shows vaccine coverage by age for Ontario. Source of data comes from Public Health Ontario. This will be updated weekly.

The graph below shows vaccine coverage by age for Quebec. Source of data comes from Province of Quebec. This will be updated weekly.


Vaccine Stats & Coverage (Ottawa)

The information below shows the vaccine stats for the city of Ottawa, ON, Canada. Source of data comes from the Ottawa Vaccination Dashboard.








Vaccine Effectiveness in Ontario

The graphs below show the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines used in Ontario (see above for brands and usage) by displaying what % of positive cases result in hospitalization, ICU admission, or death in each of those three populations since December 14, 2020 when vaccination started..  This will not add up to 100% since it is just the portion of cases impacted. Source of data comes from the Public Health Ontario.

Partially vaccinated is defined as someone who is 14 or more days following the first dose of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine or 0 to less than 14 days after receiving the second dose.

Fully vaccinated is defined as someone who is 14 or more days following the second dose of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

Unvaccinated is defined as someone who has received 0 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or 0 to less than 14 days after receiving the first dose of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine, before protection starts.


The way read these first 3 graphs is to find your age group and look at the three categories (Unvaccinated, Partially Vaccinated, Fully Vaccinated).  Choose the category that you are interested in and look at the percentage.  That is the percentage of people in that category who tested positive for COVID-19 and then ended up being hospitalized/admitted to ICU/died since December 14, 2020 when vaccination started..

The next three graphs provide a different view, showing the distribution of symptomatic and asymptomatic cases, hospitalizations, and deaths for people who were partially vaccinated, fully vaccinated, and unvaccinated since December 14, 2020 when vaccination started which add up to 100%.  Please note these graphs show the view over a wide period of time so the overall effectiveness starting when very few people were vaccinated.  It does *not* show the recent effectiveness of the vaccines which are impacted by the number of cases in the community and types of variants people are being infected with.
