Can you please explain how 103.52% of people over 80 in the province of British Columbia have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine? (https://covid19tracker.ca/provincevac.html?p=BC – I’ve screenshot it as well, in case for some odd reason this page disappears at some point.)
And, if the province of BC is engaging in “new math” such that a demographic can exceed 100% uptake for a single shot of a vaccine, is the province engaging in the same math for reporting unvaccinated deaths, age-adjusted COVID-19 deaths, etc., etc.?
Looking forward to your response!
Yours in data integrity.
