And we appear to be at the start of a fourth wave.
On August 1, Health Minister Christian Dubé shared the most recent data for vaccination rates in Quebec, in which we see that the age group of 18-29 year-olds are the least likely to get vaccinated in the province.
This is demonstrated in the graph below by the red section, which represents the percentage of non-vaccinated people without an appointment for their first dose booked. For the 18-29 year-old population in Quebec, this number is 28%.
Dubé tweeted, "To reach 75% for 18-29 only 30k people are missing. In addition, in a single day, 18-29 year olds went from 100k vaccines to receive to 90k to reach the new target of 80% of @GouvCanSante" on Sunday morning.
He also added, "Superb progression, we are very close to the goal!"
While the vaccine campaign in Quebec continues to roll out, a fourth wave may be on its way. On January 30, Canada's Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said data suggests that Canada is at the start of a fourth wave of COVID-19, mostly driven by the B.1.617.2 variant, known as the Delta variant.
