Tracking Coronavirus Vaccinations Around the World
More than 4.82 billion people worldwide have received a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, equal to about 62.8 percent of the world population. This map shows the stark gap between vaccination programs in different countries according to New York Times.
Less wealthy countries are relying on a vaccine-sharing arrangement called Covax, which originally aimed to provide two billion doses by the end of 2021 but repeatedly cut its forecasts because of production problems, export bans and vaccine hoarding by wealthy nations.
This has led to a striking divide between regions of the world. Africa has the slowest vaccination rate of any continent, with just 15.1 percent of the population receiving at least one dose of a vaccine.
