To date, at least 3.06 million inhabitants of the European Union have received a first dose of anti-Covid-19 vaccine. This only represents 0.68% of the total population, according to an AFP count. If this figure may seem minimal, it worries at the same time the World Health Organization. Because according to her, only ten countries administer 95% of vaccines against Covid-19. It does not remain months that, according to the map drawn up by “Our world in data”, vaccination on the continent remains very heterogeneous.

According to the data analysis site, the ten countries which concentrate 95% of vaccination are: United States, China, United Kingdom, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Italy, Russia , Germany, Spain and Canada.

BOX - vaccination in the States -United

Some 10 million people have received a first injection of one of two vaccines authorized in the United States, US health authorities reported on Wednesday (January 13th).

This represents about 3% of the US population , a month after the launch of the largest vaccination campaign in the country's history.

According to experts, collective immunity is achieved when around 75% of the population is vaccinated.

The vaccination program has fallen considerably behind: the Trump administration had set the ambitious goal of 20 million injections, or twice today, before the end of December.

The United States is officially targeting the immunization of 100 million people before the end of the first quarter of 2021 , ie the end of March, in two and a half months.

The vaccines currently authorized in the United States are those from Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna, which are given in two doses spaced three or four weeks apart respectively.
