Ontario Has Been Misreporting The Total Vaccinations Completed All This Time

The province has just announced that until today, it has been misreporting the total amount of Ontarians that have been fully vaccinated.

"We have been advised that officials misinterpreted the 'total vaccinations completed' category," said Alexandra Hilkene, press secretary of Health Minister Christine Elliott, in an emailed statement to Narcity.

As a result, the number of people who have been fully vaccinated is half of what is currently listed. Alexandra Hilkene

"Rather than provide data on the number of people who have been fully vaccinated (currently two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine), officials inadvertently provided data on the number of doses administered to achieve full vaccination," wrote Hilkene.

"This morning, we are updating the 'total vaccinations completed' category to reflect the total number of people who have been fully vaccinated and not the number of doses."

"We will also change the category description to 'total number of people who have been fully vaccinated'," she continued.

The number of doses administered will not change, says the statement.

Right now, the province states that 55,286 Ontarians have received both doses. According to CBC, 96,549 were recorded yesterday.

As of today, the province states that it has administered 317,240 total doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
