At least 171 countries have started vaccinating against COVID-19
What you need to know
Reuters has launched a global effort to track the vaccine rollout plans of over 80 countries and all 50 U.S. states. Our journalists are collecting, verifying and updating information on vaccine availability and eligibility as the plans are announced and implemented by governments and health authorities around the world.
Reuters is also analysing how quickly countries are vaccinating their populations, using data collected from over 130 countries by the Our World in Data project at the University of Oxford.
COVID-19 vaccination data can be reported by countries as the total number of doses administered and/or the number of people vaccinated. Because most coronavirus vaccines require two doses, many countries also report the number of people who have received just one dose and the number who have been fully vaccinated.
Many of the charts on this page show the number of people who have received at least one dose of a vaccine, which can offer significant protection against severe disease and reduce the risk of transmission, according to some studies.
If a country only reports the number of doses they have administered in total, we do not know the number of people who have been vaccinated. Those countries are excluded from our charts and statistics about people vaccinated.
How fast are countries vaccinating?
Do some countries have an advantage?
Yes, generally richer and more developed countries have better health care infrastructure to manufacture, acquire and administer doses.
About 56% of people who have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine were from high income countries, and at least 0% were from Europe and North America. (Again, that only includes data from countries that report these figures.)

Who is getting vaccinated?
Because of the limited availability of vaccines, most countries are prioritizing certain groups of people to receive their shots before others. People who are older or more likely to become very ill or die from COVID-19 are usually prioritized over those who are young and healthy. Some groups are prioritized because they are more likely to come into contact with an infected person based on what they do or where they live and, in turn, infect others.
Reuters has collected information on these priority groups for dozens of countries and determined which groups are currently eligible for vaccination.
Tap through the table below to see detailed information for each country. We will update this page as more countries acquire vaccines and announce their rollout plans.
You need to know
Reuters will strive to keep this data updated, but it may lag behind the current situation in your country. Consult your local health department for the most up-to-date information on whether you are eligible to receive a vaccine. (You can often find a link in the table below.)
For comparison purposes, Reuters has standardized the names of rollout phases and priority groups. For groups given access based on complex conditions, such as where people work or a pre-existing medical condition, a more detailed description of that group is also included in the table.
