#coronavirus: One chart shows how dramatically the pace of #vaccinations differs from country to country…
#coronavirusvaccine: Epidemiologists have estimated that countries will need to vaccinate around 75% of their populations to reach #herdimmunity - the threshold beyond which the #coronavirus can no longer spread easily from person to person.
For many nations, that's a far-off goal. At the current rate of 110,000 vaccinations per day, it could take Japan eight months to immunize just a quarter of its population, and more than two years to immunize 75%.
