CBC News is tracking the data, so you can follow the progress as vaccines are rolled out across the country. CBC's vaccine data comes from provincial and territorial websites, news briefings and releases, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Quebec does not provide breakdowns for the number of people who have received two doses. As few second doses have been administered in the province, we are recording all doses given as first doses. The number of people fully vaccinated in Quebec will remain "N/A" until second dose numbers are publicly reported.

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two doses. In the table above, "fully vaccinated" refers to the number of people who have received two doses of a vaccine.

Updates on the number of doses distributed are not always provided as regularly as those for doses administered. If you see a discrepancy between "doses given" and "doses distributed" in the table below, it usually means either the province or territory or Public Health Canada has not yet publicly reported updated numbers.

On Jan. 24, the province of Saskatchewan announced it had now used more than 100 per cent of the vaccines it received, due to "efficiencies" in drawing extra doses from vials.

Health Canada announced the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 9, 2020. On Dec. 23, it approved a second vaccine from Moderna

The first shipment of vaccine doses arrived in Quebec on Dec. 13, and Canada's vaccination program formally began soon after with the first vaccinations in Ontario and Quebec.

According to the federal government, Canada has secured contracts with Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna for a total of 80 million vaccine doses by the end of 2021.

On Feb. 26, 2021, Health Canada approved the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine. Canada has secured access to 22 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, most of which are scheduled to arrive between April and September.

On March 5, 2021, Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine became the first single-dose vaccine approved for use in Canada. The country has ordered 10 million doses, with the option for up to 28 million more. Most of those shots are expected to arrive by the end of September. 

While the federal government is responsible for distributing vaccines to each jurisdiction across the country, each province and territory is responsible for its own vaccine rollout. Most prioritized front-line health-care workers, seniors in group settings, and seniors over the age of 80 during the first round of vaccines.

The vaccines currently approved in Canada are among several that were pre-ordered by the government

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised that every Canadian who wants a shot would be vaccinated by the end of September.

Notes:

March 26: The page was updated to include the percentage of people in Canada given at least one dose. A map and table showing global vaccinations was also added.

Jan. 28: Officials in Ontario announced an error in their previous reporting of completed vaccinations. This resulted in the number of people completely vaccinated in the province decreasing by about half.

Jan. 14: Separate totals of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccine doses distributed to each province were removed. This data is currently only available weekly, with many provinces and territories not providing breakdowns in their updates. This caused the numbers to not align with the combined totals distributed to the provinces and territories, which are updated more frequently.
