#DataError; #OntarioReportsWrongFigure; #Covid19Vaccination
Ontario/Canadian-Media: Over reporting the number of people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in Ontario, Ontario Ministry of Health said Thursday, which means that only half of the people have received both doses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines against what was logged.

"Rather than provide data on the number of people who have been fully vaccinated … officials inadvertently provided data on the number of doses administered to achieve full vaccination," a spokesperson for the ministry said in a statement sent to media and added that the data on the total number of doses administered was not affected and that the data page has since been updated to accurately reflect the current figures
It was reported by the province yesterday that 96,549 people had received both doses of either vaccine so far. In reality, only 48,239 had. That is up to 55,286 this morning.
