Vaccine rollout schedule
This chart shows the number of vaccines vaccinated per 100 people in each state since the beginning of 2021. The first three states and the national figures of the United States are highlighted. Enter the name of any other state or U.S. territory in the search bar and select Add to chart.
This chart shows the daily dose of vaccine that people across the country have received since the beginning of 2021. The data peaks due to reporting lag, and the line showing the 7-day rolling average for a given dose more clearly indicates whether the rollout is accelerating or slowing.
Countries launch vaccines
More countries appear on this map, showing vaccine doses per 100 people, because these numbers are more widely reported.
To date, most countries with the highest vaccination rates have very small populations. The United States leads most other major countries in terms of vaccine launch. Search or browse this table to see what’s happening in each country.

Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna’s vaccines, clinical trial results show that they are more than 90% effective In terms of disease prevention, based on new technology It provides an RNA sequence that enables our own cells to produce viral proteins to trigger an immune response.
The disadvantage is that these vaccines are more expensive than vaccines made by splicing the genetic material of the coronavirus into a disabled version of another virus, such as the vaccine produced by the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca. Based on Oxford University research, Johnson & Johnson, And Russian Gamalian Institute.
Other leading vaccines are based on inactivated versions of the coronavirus, which is a long-term method of making vaccines, or protein subunits derived from the virus.
