Some poorer countries are yet to start mass vaccination drives.According to data published by the Guardian, over 39.8 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally. In December 2020, many countries began to approve vaccines and started vaccination drives. Because of the limited availability of vaccines, many countries prioritized older age groups.

To date, the U.S. has administered 318,576,441 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Among this figure, 150,046,006 people have been fully vaccinated (45.2 percent), according to the latest data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Similarly, the U.K. has administered a total of 74,577,678 doses of COVID vaccines. More than 29,165,140 (55.4 percent) people in the U.K. were vaccinated with both doses. Canada has administered at least 32,586,269 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, as Reuters has reported.

Compared to the above countries, African countries have recorded the lowest vaccination rates to date. Moreover, some countries are yet to start mass vaccination drives.

Bloomberg reported in April 2021 that "economies with the highest incomes have 40% of the world’s vaccinations, but just 11% of the global population."
