56.4 Percent and Rising

Local radio station CHIP-FM reports that 56.4 percent of the Pontiac’s1 population aged 18 and older has received at least one vaccine dose. The vaccination rate is even higher in age brackets 55 and up (who’ve had more time to get a jab); it’s over 90 percent for people aged 65 to 75, for example. Progress!


  1. As is often the case, it’s not clear from the report which Pontiac they’re referring to: the RLS du Pontiac (local health service network) comprises both the MRC du Pontiac (county) and the municipality of Pontiac (which is in another MRC).
