The Nation  |  Jul 31, 2021

The count of COVID-19 vaccine shots administered worldwide topped 4.1 billion as of Saturday, according to Our World In Data, a tracking website affiliated with Oxford University.

China, where the coronavirus originated in late 2019, ranks first globally with more than 1.64 billion vaccine jabs given across the country. India follows it with over 461.52 million jabs, according to the available data.

The list continues with mostly Western countries, with the US having administered over 344.93 million shots, Brazil 140.17 million, Germany 92.05 million, the UK 84.74 million, and Japan 84.01 million.

Turkey has so far administered more than 73.03 million vaccine shots, ranking eighth worldwide, while almost 41 million people have received one jab.

Turkey is followed by France with over 72.67 million shots, Italy 68.19 million, Indonesia 66.95 million, Mexico 65.63 million, Russia nearly 61 million, and Spain 55.71 million.

As COVID-19 vaccines are generally given in two separate doses per person, the count of administered vaccines does not mean that the same number of people has been vaccinated.
