With 60% of the population fully immunized against Covid-19, Brazil is above the global average for immunization, which is 41%. Last week the country surpassed the United States, which stagnated with 58% of the population fully vaccinated.

Despite the good percentage and the number of vaccinees continuing to rise, Brazil follows behind neighboring countries such as Chile, which has 82% of its population immunized, and Uruguay, with 76%.

Data on the adherence of the Brazilian population to vaccination indicate a positive path for controlling the coronavirus. Of the vaccination groups that have already had the second dose available, people between 60 and 69 years old, 70 and 79 years old and over 80 years old stand out, with 95%, 94% and 92% of them fully vaccinated, respectively.

Until this Saturday, Brazil has already applied 300,543,741 doses of vaccine against Covid-19, whether single dose, second dose or booster, according to a survey by CNN Agency. In all, 128,685,521 Brazilians are already fully immunized, either with two doses or a single dose of Janssen’s vaccine.

Brazil is in fourth place among the countries that apply the most absolute doses in the world, but it is only 37th when taking into account the number of vaccines applied for every 100,000 inhabitants.
