Ontario reports another 654 COVID-19 cases and two more deaths, according to your latest report released Saturday morning.
Ontario has administered 37,715 vaccine dose since its last daily update, with 22,042,483 vaccinations administered in total at 8 pm the night before.
According to Star’s vaccine tracker, 11,334,775 people in Ontario have received at least one injection. That works out to about 87 percent of the eligible population ages 12 and older, and the equivalent of 76.3 percent of the total population, including those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.
The province says 10,707,708 people have completed their vaccinations, meaning they have received both doses. That equates to about 82.1% of the eligible population ages 12 and older, and the equivalent of 72% of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.
The province now includes data that reflects hospitalizations and cases by vaccination status. Ontario cautions that the process may cause discrepancies between other hospitalization numbers that are collected through a different process, and that the data may not match daily COVID-19 case counts.
The province reports that 385 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in unvaccinated people, 30 were partially vaccinated, and 190 cases in fully vaccinated people. Again, the province cautions that the data may not match daily COVID case counts because records with a missing or invalid health card number cannot be linked.
The province says data on hospitalizations by vaccination status will not be updated on Sundays and Mondays due to incomplete weekend reports.
The province also includes data on COVID-19 in schools as part of its daily reports.
There are 774 schools with a reported COVID case out of 4,844 schools in the province, or 15.98 percent.
There are 126 new cases reported Friday for a total of 2,975 school-related COVID cases reported in Ontario.
