ICES COVID-19 Dashboard


This dashboard provides an overview of the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of individuals who are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccination in Ontario.

By linking COVID-19 vaccination data from the COVaxON provincial database to health and other administrative data from the ICES data repository, we describe below the demographic characteristics and medical histories of those who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine according to where they live, and the number of vaccine doses received.

The dashboard is updated on a monthly basis.

Dashboard Vaccine Coverage Summary

Monthly Data on Vaccine Coverage in Ontario by Public Health Unit, Age, and Vaccination Status

Covid-19 Vaccine Status in Ontario: Monthly Highlights as of May 8, 2022

The percentage of individuals aged 18 years and older who remain unvaccinated (see light blue bar in Interactive Graph below) varied substantially across public health units (PHUs), ranging from 6% in the following four PHUs: Peel, Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington, Ottawa, and Middlesex-London to 16% in the following three PHUs: Haldimand-Norfolk, Chatham-Kent, and Timiskaming.

Vaccination is important for children.

  • The percentage of children aged 5-11 years who remain unvaccinated varied widely across PHUs, ranging from 33% in Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington to 64% in Haldimand-Norfolk.

Studies show that adults experience decreased protection against COVID-19 infection 84 days (i.e., 3 months) after their second vaccination (see light purple bar in Interactive Graph below), but protection against infection-related hospitalization and death remains strong. Such individuals are eligible for a 3rd dose.

Given emerging evidence on the particular importance of 3rd doses to those of advanced age and those who are at high-risk of severe infection (such as those who are immunocompromised) it is notable that:

  • The percentage of individuals aged 40-69 years who were 84 days or more from their 2nd dose and who had not yet received a 3rd dose varied substantially across PHUs, ranging from 18% in Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington to 33% in Peel.
  • The percentage of individuals aged 70+ years who were 84 days or more from their 2nd dose and who had not yet received a 3rd dose varied substantially across PHUs, ranging from 6% in Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington to 18% in Peel.

Monthly Data on Vaccine Coverage in Ontario by Postal Code Region

Covid-19 Vaccine Coverage in Ontario: Monthly Highlights as of May 8, 2022

The percentage of individuals aged 5+ years with at least 2 doses varied substantially by postal code region1, ranging from 57% to 100%.

Coverage with at least 1 dose among those aged 5-11 years varied from 23% to 100% across postal code regions.

Given evidence on the importance of 3rd doses to older and other high-risk populations it is notable that:

  • Coverage with at least 3 doses among those aged 65+ years ranged from 61% to 100% across postal code regions.

1Postal code regions were previously referred to as forward sortation area (FSA), which is the first three characters of a postal code.
