    The COVID-19 vaccination rate is gaining worldwide attention. Almost a year and a half since the COVID-19 outbreak started, countries are counting on vaccines as an effective way to stop the coronavirus from spreading. More than 1.7 billion vaccine doses have been administered worldwide. That’s equal to around 23 doses for every 100 people. However, vaccine inequity poses a major risk to recovery.
