Our World in Data is now tracking Covid-19 vaccinations globally

Press Release 8 Jan - 13:27 SAST

by Edouard Mathieu, Hannah Ritchie and Max Roser of Our World in Data

Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, Our World in Data has been tracking a range of vital metrics, including cases, deaths, testing, hospitalisations and policy responses.

In December 2020, the organisation has started tracking another essential metric: Covid-19 vaccinations. You can find all the data — total vaccinations administered, per capita vaccinations, daily vaccination rates, and policies on the Covid-19 Vaccination page. Vaccination metrics have also been added to the organisation’s Coronavirus Data Explorer and its Complete Covid-19 Dataset on GitHub.

Since the first announcement of vaccines administered by the United Kingdom in early December 2020, Our World in Data has been building a global database of vaccinations across the world. Many hundred media outlets and researchers rely on this data already, and the organisation will continue to keep this up-to-date with the latest figures for all countries over the coming months.
