0

Are you curious about how many people in your neighbourhood have been vaccinated against COVID-19? The Alberta government has launched an interactive online map that showcases just that.

The new online map, launched Monday, breaks down vaccine coverage by local geographic area.

Albertans now have access to the percentage of people who have received at least one dose, the percentage of people who are fully immunized and the total number of doses that have been administered in any Alberta Health Services region across the province, broken down by age group.

The map is part of the province’s commitment to provide “robust information to Albertans related to COVID-19 in our province.”

“This map is a helpful tool for Albertans, and reflects our government’s commitment to transparency,” Premier Jason Kenney said in a news release Monday.

“Since the start of this pandemic, Alberta has consistently provided more online information to Albertans than any other jurisdiction because we know that being informed helps us all to be part of the solution.”

Health Minister Tyler Shandro said with the province’s vaccine rollout gaining momentum, tracking vaccine uptake within communities will help people support each other to be protected.

“As we move closer toward widespread immunity, we hope this will motivate individuals and communities to do the right thing for themselves, for each other and for our health system,” Shandro said in a news release.
