Three billion COVID-19 vaccine shots have been administered worldwide – Roya News English

As of Tuesday, the world's population had received three billion injections of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, vaccination campaigns remain uneven and poor countries still struggle to get vaccinated.

At least 3,009,773,775 doses have been administered worldwide according to an AFP tally based on official sources as of 11:00 GMT. The vaccination rate was 39 doses (first or second) per 100 people.

While the number of doses reached one billion 20 weeks after the start of mass vaccination campaigns in December and the second billion was reached within six weeks, it took less than four weeks to reach the third billion.
