Corona: Vaccination rates in Germany and in international comparison

With a rate of 73.3 percent of people vaccinated twice against Corona (as of January 24, 2021), Germany is in 39th place in the . Gibraltar is the best with 118.9 percent double vaccinated. The 18.9 percent over the age of 100 come from commuters from Spain who have been vaccinated in Gibraltar. At the bottom are four African countries and Haiti. Their corona vaccination rates are between 1.3 and 0.2 percent of those who have been vaccinated twice.

Low corona vaccination rate harbors risk of mutations

The problem with low vaccination rates: there are millions of mutation chances for Sars-CoV-2 every day worldwide. Few of these are threatening, but the large numbers continue to pose a serious risk. According to “Statista”, more than ten billion vaccine doses have been injected worldwide – 2.9 billion of them in China alone (as of January 27, 2021). Theoretically, each of the estimated 7.89 billion people in the world could have been vaccinated against Corona at least once. However, the vaccines are distributed very unevenly. While most people in Germany have already been vaccinated against Corona two or three times, in many countries the majority of the population is still waiting for the first dose of Corona vaccine.
