Vaccination against COVID-19 has now started in 161 locations, covering 91% of the world population. We’d love to share this Country-by-country data on the COVID-19 vaccinations website with a lot of useful information. This page has a number of charts on vaccination. You can select any country you are interested in — or several if you want to compare countries. Check this Our World in Data website.
The Our World in Data COVID vaccination data
To bring this pandemic to an end, a large share of the world needs to be immune to the virus. The safest way to achieve this is with a vaccine. Vaccines are a technology that humanity has often relied on in the past to bring down the death toll of infectious diseases.
Within less than 12 months after the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, several research teams rose to the challenge and developed vaccines that protect from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Now the challenge is to make these vaccines available to people around the world. It will be key that people in all countries — not just in rich countries — receive the required protection. To track this effort we at Our World in Data are building the international COVID-19 vaccination dataset that we make available on this page. It is updated each morning, with the most recent official numbers up to the previous day.
- Data sources: at the end of this page you find a detailed list of all our country-specific sources.
- Open access: as with all of our data, we are making this dataset openly available, so that everyone can check and use the data that we bring together. You find the vaccination data in our daily-updated repository on GitHub.
You can download the full dataset alongside the detailed source descriptions on GitHub.
Note that other countries may have also started vaccination campaigns—we’ll add them to our maps and charts as soon as numbers are verifiable based on public official sources.
We do not include participants in the vaccine arm of clinical trials, as this data is not available for many of the hundreds of trials currently taking place.
The population estimates we use to calculate per-capita metrics are all based on the last revision of the United Nations World Population Prospects. The exact values can be viewed in our GitHub repository.
