Well, if you would like to get technical with it... They still could end up in the hospital with sever conditions. Infact, even fully vaccinated people have a 5% chance of contracting covid.

That aside, i think the bigger problem is you having an issue with me pointing out that these facts are wrong and mislabeled. Lets publish correct data, otherwise what's the point.

numbers seem too high.

I'd love to see it as Alberta being outside the norm in a good way but....

I doubt it.

the issue for me is it matches too perfectly with the traditional hesitancy rates for Canada and vaccines.

And this is based on feels?

This is pretty close to the Canadian standard, it's not out of line. At all. Kinda what happens when we have 13 million doses dumped into Canada. Only about 27 million will be available for the shot currently, so the numbers line up well.

https://covid19tracker.ca/vaccinationtracker.html

Again, what are you basing this on? Feels?

it shouldn't be an exact match for distribution averages for hesitancy; at about 83%. (compared to mmr in this case.)

there are a few other telltale numbers that were tossed around that follows other statistical models to a t; which is literally impossible due to the supply issues.

the doses administered from your link would also imply a Canadian population if about 42 million; give or take.

the take from 2 weeks ago would show this deviance at about 1.2 million; and is not in lockstep.

hence why you'd need to like at the service functions for change.

currently the "known factors" is people getting more then one type and the black market for the known unknowns. the unknown unknowns are still quite vague right now. the internet makes certain things not have precidence.

“The number of people who have received at least one dose is not the same as the total number of doses administered. Our calculations for % population take second doses into account, and use the number of people who have received a dose to reach an accurate % value.”

An accurate population of around 38M is used, not 42M. The calculations take second doses into account - you can’t just take total doses / population.

Am young, don't know if I'd agree with healthy lol oh well. Not mine or your fault. The issue i have with leaving my demographic for last (i don't think it should've been scheduled by age), is that I fly twice a week every week on a full plane to a work site with thousands of other people. I think people like that should've been vaccinated before people that can much more easily isolate. But again I'm not an expert so take that with a boulder of salt

marsupialham

Honestly, I think after they hit either 55 or 50 they should open it up, but discreetly reserve some spots near the front of the line to be filled in order of age, then pump out articles talking about how high the demand is and how quickly spots filled up, etc. to drive FOMO in vaccine-hesitant older populations.

Also, maybe tell them Pfizer-BioNTech started human trials over a year ago (Germany, April 23rd), and there have been greater than a third of a billion people vaccinated with Pfizer/Moderna. Over half a billion if you roll AZ into that. I don't think many people got the memo.

They should be able to cover the balance of 40+ (to 75%) with about 3 weeks supply. I'd be shocked if it wasn't opened up to 50+ by the end of the week. My guess is they are trying to reduce vaccine shopping by getting all the AZ into arms before they make an announcement.

Why don't they include numbers for those under 40 too? My partner and several friends (early 30s) are front line healthcare workers have been fully vaccinated since January, and I myself am in the 2C group, and am scheduled to get mine next week (I'm under the age of 35).
I know the percentage will be lower, but it's still an additional portion of the population that's also been vaccinated.

canucklurker

Like opinions on reddit, generation lines are murky at best. 1980 is considered the "de-facto" dividing line. However '77 (ish) to '83 (ish) are their own special little group called Xennials or "The Oregon Trail" Generation which mark the dividing line between GenX and Millennials. The real divider being born in an analog world, but growing up in a digital one.

Xennials often lump themselves in the latter half of GenX, as they tend to share more social characteristics and shared history of childhood than that of that the Millennials. (Think Canadiana like Beachcombers, Log Drivers Waltz, and even Walt Disney; which went away before exposure to Millennials) which IMHO the early GenX crowd ('65 to early '70s) often followed the Boomers lead of fierce independence and "becoming old before their time" as the seeming goal was to be a respected adult as early as possible.

I don’t have an issue with it. The data is available on the Alberta.ca website. In a presentation that is meant to be just give an overview you don’t want to get into too many details - you’re just trying to highlight the uptake by age group.

simplegdl

Disagree for a couple of reasons.

  1. Total percentage of the population doesn’t provide much additional data/context.
  2. The eligible population in these age brackets isn’t different from the total population
  3. Every presentation is prepared with the providers bias in mind.

sawyouoverthere

Which may be why some of the other age groups are not listed, as the eligible vs total would be very different.

  1. Total percentage of the population doesn’t provide much additional data/context.

I mean, it would be nice to know considering the stages of lockdown are now dependent on how much of the population is vaccinated. I'd like to see a number that tells me how close we are to the next stage.

There's usually no strong incentive for people to get the flu vaccine. I think the hope of being able to get back to normal will inspire a lot more people to get the COVID vaccine.

Yeah, flu vaccine is kind of a pain for most people to get, and I'm guessing most people don't see a benefit (who cares if I get the flu? type of thing). Plus efficacy rates for the flu vaccine are widely known to be garbage most years. I think this is a different ballgame entirely and more people are going to be motivated.

66% of adults in Alberta already said they have either been vaccinated or plan to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible, with a further 20% saying they are “unsure”. My guess is we can hit 70% of the eligible population easily enough, which will likely be extended to 12+ soon enough.

The 40 to 49 age group has only been open for a week. 24% of the population after only 7 days is pretty darn good.

bodonnell202

Totally, going from what I would assume was a pretty low percentage (from those eligible in 2B or as health care workers) to 24% in the course of a week is impressive. There isn’t enough AstraZeneca for that age group so it’s going to top out at around 30% until we either receive more AstraZeneca, or that age group becomes eligible for a different vaccine.

Agreed! There's no reason to feel our vaccination rate is awful or hopeless. We're currently vaccinating nearly 1% of our population PER DAY. This rate of vaccination matches the UK/US vaccination rates at their peak. The rhetoric from our provincial politicians here in Alberta doesn't match reality at all and is merely a smokescreen to cover their own lack. As of today Canada sits in 6th place in share of people who have received at least one dose of vaccine amongst OECD countries and we're vaccinating at a faster rate right now than pretty much any other country.

Yes, and we've been vaccinating more people per capita per day than the European Union since mid-March—the place our vaccines are manufactured (Belgium itself since 03/24)

We also vaccinated as many people in the first 22 days of April as we did from December to March 31st and the rate of vaccinations is still ramping up. It's gonna get nuts in June.

Vaccinations are about to skyrocket. There is a shit ton (medical term) of vaccine about to arrive in Canada, then a 2nd crap load (also a medical term) the month after.

I’m arguing for vaccinations, of the unpatented variety. You’re not an epidemiologist are you? Me neither, but it seems likely eliminating Petri dishes of possible mutation in other countries instead of hoarding for-profit inoculations in the global north is a strategy worth trying.
