In a ranking of vaccinations per 100 people, Israel came in first, followed by the United Kingdom and the U.S.
Israel is so far the fastest country in inoculating its population against the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Our World in Data, a global, aggregated database on COVID-19, presented a comprehensive picture of the state of COVID-19 inoculations around the world.
On a scale of the number of COVID-19 vaccination doses administered per 100 people within a given population, Israel came in first with 0.83, followed by the United Kingdom with 0.74, and the US with 0.19.
The global average is currently 0.03.
A total of 2.41 million doses have been administered around the world, the majority in China with some 1 million doses.
Over 72,000 Israelis have received the Pfizer-developed COVID-19 vaccine in the first 72 hours of Operation “Lend a Shoulder” to inoculate the population.
Pushing for a rate of some 60,000 shots a day, the government hopes that some two million Israelis will be inoculated by the end of January.
