The biggest vaccination campaign in history is underway. More than 7.64 billion doses have been administered across 184 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. The latest rate was roughly 34.3 million doses a day.

In the U.S., 445 million doses have been given so far. An average 1.26 million doses per day were administered over the last week.

When will life return to normal?

While the best vaccines are highly effective at preventing hospitalization and death, it takes a coordinated campaign to stop a pandemic. Infectious-disease experts have said that vaccinating 70% to 85% of the U.S. population would enable a return to normalcy, but boosters may be required to keep the disease in check.

On a global scale, that’s a daunting level of vaccination. At the current pace of 11.9 million people getting their first shots each day, the goal of halting the pandemic remains elusive. Manufacturing capacity, however, is increasing, thanks to new vaccines and added capacity from existing drugmakers.

The Path to Immunity Around the World

Globally, the latest vaccination rate is 34,275,904 doses per day, which includes 11,939,071 people getting their first shot. At this pace, it will take another 5 months until 75% of the population has received at least one dose.

‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated’

Israel was first to show that vaccines were bending the curve of Covid infections. The country led the world in early vaccinations, and by February more than 84% of people ages 70 and older had received two doses. Covid cases declined rapidly, and a similar pattern of vaccination and recovery repeated across dozens of other countries.

This progress is under threat. New strains, led by the highly transmissible delta variant, caused renewed outbreaks. Israel saw another surge of cases, which it brought under control by offering boosters to all vaccinated people. Worldwide, unvaccinated people are more at risk than ever, leading U.S. health officials to dub it a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

However even among those who are vaccinated, the delta variant may lead to mild cases, and those who get sick are able to spread the disease to others, according to the latest data. The vaccines remain effective at reducing hospitalizations and deaths for approx 4 to 6 months

Vaccinations vs. Cases

Vaccines have helped reduce case numbers in the places where they’ve been deployed most widely. Currently, 36 places have given at least one dose to 75% of the population.

Bloomberg Travel Tracker

Since the start of the global vaccination campaign, countries have experienced unequal access to vaccines and varying degrees of efficiency in getting shots into people’s arms. Before March, few African nations had received a single shipment of shots. By contrast, 134 doses have been administered for every 100 people in the U.S.

Delivering billions of vaccines to stop the spread of Covid-19 worldwide is one of the greatest logistical challenges ever undertaken.

U.S. Vaccinations: State by State

More than half of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, and supply of shots is plentiful. The vaccination campaign, however, has slowed. Once the envy of the world for its swift rollout, the U.S. has since been overtaken by dozens of countries. There are still wide gaps between the most and least vaccinated counties in the U.S., leaving many communities vulnerable to continued outbreaks.

Distribution in the U.S. has been directed by the federal government. Pfizer and BioNTech’s vaccine, as well as Moderna’s shot both require two doses taken several weeks apart. J&J’s inoculation requires just a single dose. Additional booster shots may be used to enhance protections over time.

So far, 228 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine—88.5% of the adult population. At least 196 million people have completed a vaccination regimen. The U.S. is sending some of its excess supply to other hard-hit regions of the world.

Vaccines Across America

More than 445 million doses have been administered in the U.S.—134 shots for every 100 people

A new beginning

It takes about two weeks after a final vaccine dose for immunity to fully develop. While the CDC has offered guidance on mask-wearing after vaccination, many local governments and businesses have set their own rules.

Unvaccinated people, including children, should still wear masks indoors, according to the CDC’s latest guidance.

U.S. Vaccinations vs. Cases

Vaccines have helped reduce case numbers in the places where they’ve been deployed most widely. Currently, 12 places have given at least one dose to 75% of the population.

U.S. health officials are now focused on how to vaccinate people who have been reluctant to get a shot. Younger, unvaccinated populations are increasingly viewed as key to getting the pandemic under control.

After focusing first on hospitals and other institutional health-care settings, states expanded the number of places that offer the shots. Mass vaccination centers were created from sport stadiums, theme parks, convention halls and race tracks. Now the campaign has moved to more traditional health-care settings: pharmacies, doctors’ offices and clinics.

The Path to Immunity in the U.S.

In the U.S., the latest vaccination rate is about 1,264,596 doses per day, which includes 436,163 people people getting their first shot. At this pace, it will take another 2 months until 75% of the population has received at least one dose. United States (2 months to 75% coverage) Jan.
