The biggest vaccination campaign in history is underway. More than 966 million doses have been administered across 172 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg, APA reports.

The latest rate was roughly 16.4 million doses a day.

In the U.S., 219 million doses have been given so far. In the last week, an average of 2.95 million doses per day were administered.

Enough doses have now been administered to fully vaccinate 6.3% of the global population—but the distribution has been lopsided. Countries with the highest incomes are getting vaccinated about 25 times faster than those with the lowest.
