COVID-19 OUTBREAK: Race Towards Full Vaccination

By Niall McCarthy

Scientists initially estimated that 60 to 70 percent of a population would have to acquire resistance to Covid-19 in order for herd immunity to take effect, a threshold that has been revised upwards since the start of the year with 80 to 85 percent quoted in some cases. The race towards full vaccination is well underway and Israel has the highest share of its population fully jabbed, according to Our World in Data.

Despite the ever-higher immunity threshold discussed by scientists, Israel’s Covid-19 case count started to tumble when 40 percent of its population received at least one jab and now 59.5 percent of its inhabitants are fully vaccinated. Covid-19 cases in Israel are now rare and it appears that the country has achieved herd immunity with just under 60 percent of the population vaccinated.

With 52.4 percent of its inhabitants fully vaccinated, Bahrain comes second on the list,. In the United States, 44.6 percent of people have been fully vaccinated. In this case, full vaccination refers to all doses prescribed by the vaccination protocol with data only available for countries reporting the breakdown of their doses.
