Hello, fourth wave. 😞


From the Weekly Data Summary, information about cases/hospitalizations/deaths by age between 15 June and 15 July:

Between 15 June and 15 July, nobody under 80 who had been double-vaxxed died; nobody under 60 who had been double-vaxxed got hospitalized. Partly that’s because there were not many cases, but partly because vaccines work.

People have asked me why the vaccination rate has dropped off so much recently.

  • Our inter-dose interval is 7 weeks right now.
  • 7 weeks ago today was 10 June.
  • If you look at the Inoculation chart below, you’ll see that first doses started to drop at about 2 June.
  • We can’t give second doses to people who haven’t gotten first doses. 😉

So the fall-off in vaccinations isn’t that odd. What we really need is more people with first doses, and the province is really working hard on that. (If you look at Adrian Dix’ Twitter feed, it is FULL of announcements of pop-up clinics and town halls.)


Also from the Weekly Data Summary, in the week ending 22 July, the proportion of cases which were delta and P1 didn’t change much.


+204 cases, +0 deaths.

Currently 51 in hospital / 20 in ICU, 1,055 active cases, 146,810 recovered.

We have 659,731 doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 12.5 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d received by 16 days ago.

We have 598,076 mRNA doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 11.3 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d received by 10 days ago.

Currently, 79.1% of people who got a first dose have gotten a second dose.
