The country with the most doses administered by population is the East African island nation of Seychelles, with 139.51 doses per 100 people.
Most COVID-19 vaccines are administered in two doses, so the number of shots given is not the same as the number of individuals fully vaccinated.
Since December 2019, the pandemic has claimed over 3.79 million lives in 192 countries and regions, with more than 175.72 million cases reported worldwide, according to the US Johns Hopkins University.
The US, India, and Brazil remain the worst-hit countries.
