Vaccination Numbers Around the World
135,087,319 Americans have been fully vaccinated so far, according to CDC numbers as of 30 May 2021. Another 30,000 have received at least one dose.
Globally, more than 1.86 billion doses of vaccines have been administered. The current rate of doses given per day is about 32 million.
China is reporting an uptick in vaccinations. About 22 percent of their population have now received vaccines. Mongolia is even higher, with close to 37 percent of its population vaccinated. Russia is under 10 percent, and much of Africa is reporting very light vaccination numbers.
Much of Europe is averaging about one-third of their populations as vaxxed.
Brazil, the largest South American country, has edged up in vaccination rates over the last two weeks, to about 16 percent of its population. Argentina is close to those numbers. Other areas, except for Chile and Uruguay, remain more lightly vaccinated.
