Tracking Covid-19 Vaccine Distribution

The WSJ has an interesting article on Vaccine Distribution Tracking

66.5 Million Doses Administered

66.5M doses have been administered out of the 88.7M doses distributed.

Leading States 

  • Alaska: 21.3%
  • South Dakota: 18.4%
  • Connecticut: 17.3% 
  • North Dakota: 17.1%

Lagging states

RECOMMENDED ARTICLES

  • Utah: 11.4%
  • Tennessee: 11.5%
  • Georgia: 11.5%
  • Texas: 11.6%

Vaccinations are not Red vs Blue state, nor Big vs Small state so it's difficult to say why some states are much better than others. 

Israel leads the world with 36.4% of the population fully vaccinated and 52.4% receiving one dose.

G7 Countries - Fully and Partially

  • UK: 0.9% and 26.4%
  • US: 5.9% and 13.3%
  • Germany 2.2% and 4.2%
  • Italy: 2.2% and 3.9%
  • France: 1.8% and 3.8%
  • Canada: 0.8% and 2.6%
  • Japan: 0.0% and 0.0%

The US is doing far better than the EU. The UK strategy is clearly to get the most people vaccinated as soon as possible rather than attempting to go for both shots.
