*CBHSSJB has revised data sources for weekly vaccination statistics. Prior to September 28, 2021, Eeyou Istchee’s population was calculated based on estimates from the Institut de la statistique du Québec (ISQ).

Effective September 28, vaccination statistics will be calculated based on the JBNQA registry. This provides a better estimate of the proportion of permanent residents of Eeyou Istchee who are vaccinated. Proportions now exclude people who were vaccinated while in Eeyou Istchee, but do not live there permanently.
