The emergency authorization of several COVID-19 vaccines in late 2020 and early 2021 has brought the world to the next phase of the pandemic: putting these new injections in weapons around the world. This map shows the partial vaccination rates of populations around the world.
That progress has been uneven, with significant disparities between countries of different income levels – although global partnerships such as COVAX trying to make sure vaccines reach lower-income countries. Based on Our world in dataAn online publication that the team based at the University of Oxford, said as of July 13, about 80% of people in high-income countries had received at least one dose of the vaccine compared with just 19 % in low-income countries.
High-income countries injected the first dose of the drug into the majority of their population in early July 2021. During the same period, low-income countries have only surpassed 1%. More than a year later, the same scenario is repeating for booster doses: As of July 13, more than 50% of people in high-income countries have received booster doses, compared with just 1.2 % in low-income countries.
Our data world also publishes data on COVID-19 mortality rate, with low-income countries also experiencing worse outcomes. As of July 13, the cumulative case fatality rate was 2.32% in low-income countries, compared with 0.74% in high-income countries.
