More than 4.53 billion people worldwide have received a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, equal to about 59.1 percent of the world population and roughly 50 percent of the global population are fully vaccinated, according to the NYT Covid tracker.

According to the WHO, one of the hurdles in achieving the target of 70% of total population coverage in all countries by mid-2022 will be “demand limits arising from widespread misinformation and its resulting vaccine hesitancy.”
