Following the emergency approvals of several COVID-19 vaccines in late 2020 and early 2021, the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine moved to the next level; now, the leading economies are trying to vaccinate their citizen as soon as possible. As of June 9, 2022, more than 200 countries have administered around 12 billion doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, of which 4.6 billion are fully vaccinated means more than half of the world’s population are fully vaccinated.
An individual who has received at least one dose of vaccination is referred to as vaccinated. Moreover, a person who has received either a single-dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson or both doses of a two-dose vaccine, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, is referred to as fully vaccinated. Additionally, the concerns around decreasing immunity against COVID-19 and the rise of new variants such as Omicron have prompted nations to administer additional booster doses.
Vaccination in Top Economies
China is leading the vaccination race as more than 90% of its population are fully vaccinated, and a total of 3.4 billion vaccine doses have been administered as of June 9, 2022. Spain, Australia, and South Korea have one of the highest vaccination rates, with over 86% of their population fully vaccinated. Japan has administered both doses to more than 80% of its population. In France, 79% of the population has been fully vaccinated, whereas, in Germany, 78% has received both doses. More than two-thirds of the US population are fully vaccinated, with 104 million receiving booster shots.
The scale and speed of the vaccine rollout were unparalleled; however, there is a stark gap between high-income and low-income countries. More than two-thirds population of the African region are not vaccinated, while high-income nations have administered both doses of vaccine to more than two-thirds of their people.
