Covid-19 vaccination in Latin America remains severely unequal, but there are some good examples. By July-end, 11 countries in the continent will report vaccination rates above the world average — which currently stands at 27.1 percent, according to platform Our World in Data.
Argentina (52%), Brazil (46.3%), and México (32.2%) come next.
El Salvador and Costa Rica are the positive examples in Central America, having vaccinated 39 percent of their populations with one dose, Panama has 34.4 percent and Cuba, relying on its domestic-made vaccines, tries to curb its worst pandemic period with a vaccination campaign that has reached 30.4 percent of its population.
Last week, Latin America administered 26 million vaccine doses, a new regional record. As of today, the continent reports over 335 million vaccine shots, meaning 52.24 doses for every 100 inhabitants.
