40% Of Population Had One Dose, 31% Had Two

April 13, 2021 | 17 Comments

As of April 10, Bermuda had administered a total of 45,761 Covid-19 vaccinations, so 40% of the population has received one dose, while 31% of the population has received 2 doses, the Government said this evening.

Speaking at tonight’s [April 13] press conference, Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “We have completed the thirteenth full week of vaccinations. From January 11 to April 10, 2021, Bermuda has administered a total of 45,761 vaccinations – a figure that rises to 46,935 if you include vaccinations administered on Sunday and Monday. This is very good news indeed.

“Of the 45,761 vaccinations administered for the period we are reporting on, which ends April 10th;

  • 54% are women, and,
  • 46% are men.

“Bermuda’s goal of “herd immunity” will be achieved when 70% of the population [64,054] has been immunised. To date, 40% of the population has been vaccinated [with 1 dose], and 31% of the population has been immunised [with 2 doses].”

“To push forward and get close to this goal more quickly, the Ministry will be ramping up the vaccination programme,” she added. You can read the full details of that here.

    These numbers are wrong, our population is 62,098. So, that means we need 43,468 people to be vaccinated. Which we have already…the numbers our government is giving us is for a country with a population of 95,000.

    • Question says:

      I think it probably means we have received 45,000 doses, many of which have been second doses. So the number of people who have received shots is actually much lower.
      But it’s as clear as mud, like all these stats. Pointless and misleading numbers.

      I wouldn’t get too hung up on the 70% number either. It’s not like a switch flips magically and ‘herd immunity’ suddenly happens. Most more sophisticated countries are being pretty vague about the ‘actual’ number, which will vary (i.e. increase) according to the transmissibility of variants. I’ve seen estimates it needs to be more like 85-90%, because new variants are more easily spread.
      None of which has ever been considered by this lot.

    • Lionfish says:

      They’re counting number of shots, and immunization is achieved through two shots plus two weeks. Two shots needed per person. So when looking at the numbers, divide the number of shots administered by two and turns out their numbers are accurate.

    • Airport says:

      I think you’re missing the obvious point that you need 2 shots to be fully vaccinated. The 45K number includes double doses so the actual number of vaccinated people is lower.

    • Stop asking dumb questions says:

      Everyone needs 2 shots to be immunized

    • jj ff says:

      I believe, in an effort to bolster their statistics they are reporting individual vaccinations.
      So that 46,000 is a combination of doubles and singles leading to their percentages of 31% with two vaccination and 9% with one.

    • Dusty says:

      No, the 45,000 number is the total number of shots that have been given. That’s 19,800 people fully immunized (so 39,700 shots) plus a further 5,700ish with only one shot so far. (Clear as mud)

      • Dejavu says:

        Ok I think majority of you can’t read it says 70% of the population needs to vaccinated which they say is 64,000. We don’t have that many people in this country so what are you talking about with 1 or 2 shots has nothing to do with the statement made. Learn to read before you criticize my comment. This is why the government does what it wants because the majority are to dumb to think for themselves. So whatever the government says it’s golden lol. This is the same government that couldn’t put together a bus schedule

        • Question says:

          You’re the one that got the whole thing wrong. Several people were nice enough to come on here and explain it. You’re obviously too pig ignorant to understand what people are saying to you.

    • NC says:

      We don’t have 43k vaccinated people, we have 45k shots in arms – which counts individual jabs for those who have 2 shots and those who have had 1. The number of individual people comes down a lot if you don’t count shot #2. When they say 70% of our population, the 64k number noted is supposed to be the total population number, not 70% of the population.

  2. Cotton Wool Brigade says:

    “Bermuda’s goal of “herd immunity” will be achieved when 70% of the population [64,054] has been immunised.”

    In the above statement, is 70% of the population 64,054 people/persons? If so, that makes Bermuda’s population over 90,000 people/persons. Did I miss the news story celebrating nearly 30k new births in the last few months?

    Or, is Bermuda’s population 64.054, and when 70%, or 44,837, are vaccinated, we will have achieved herd immunity?

    Does this mean Bermuda has 19,217 people/persons under the age of 16? Cause if we don’t, we can’t achieve herd immunity, unless you start jabbing your children.

    I believe Bermuda has an aging population (part of the reason why we are in such an economic mess), so maybe we will achieve herd immunity after all.

    Well done us. Are we allowed to pat ourselves on the back under these current restrictions?

    we are chasing the common cold flu/

    vaccine dont stop covid and you can still catch it. pointless!!

    pay attention !!

  4. Noncents says:

    The way they present the numbers is a bit confusing but 45,761 vaccines administered does not equal 45,761 people. Nor does 40% one dose + 31% two dose equal 71% of the population. A majority of the 46k doses are people that have had two shots so the real number is in the low-mid 20K or around a third of the population. Still a ways to get to 70% which seems unlikely given the vaccines are now available to all adults.

  5. Airport says:

    64,054 = 100% of the population

    • trufth says:

      And 70% of our total population of 64k is 44,800.

      So herd “immunity” will be reached when 44,800 people get 2 shots plus 2 weeks.

    • trufth says:

      And 31% of our 64k population is 19,840 (people that have had 2 doses).

      That isn’t even half way to our goal of 44,800 people. Yet “this is very good news indeed”? (Minister Wilson)

      Maybe I’m missing something? Do I have bad maths?

  6. StantheMaintenanceMan says:

    Yep and that will be the percentage of our population loss over the next couple of years from this human experiment. Open your eyes and stop being sheeple people.
