By Zoila Palma: COVID-19 vaccination campaigns continue worldwide with more than 1.3 billion vaccine doses being administered in 174 countries.

There is still a large gap between vaccination programs in several countries.

The data on Worldwide vaccination is compiled from Our World in Data project at the University of Oxford.

Countries that have received the COVID-19 vaccines have focused on priority groups including those clinically vulnerable and elderly.

With relation to continents, the vaccination rate in North America and Europe are the highest and Africa has the lowest vaccination rate with some countries yet to commence mass vaccination campaigns.

Lower-income countries are fully relying on the World Health Organization’s COVAX facility.

In addition, 83% of those shots administered have been in high and upper-middle-income countries and only 0.3% in low-income countries.

Most of the COVID-19 vaccines require 2 doses to be fully vaccinated.
