Asian Countries Vaccinate Against Covid-19 Faster Than Ever

SEOUL—Covid-19 vaccine rollouts have accelerated in many Asia-Pacific countries in recent weeks, overtaking the pace of doses being administered in the U.S. and other Western nations and increasing the chances of a sooner-than-expected easing of some pandemic restrictions.
China now accounts for roughly half of the world’s 33 million Covid-19 shots administered every day, with four-fifths of Beijing’s adults having gotten a single dose. In the past month, South Korea increased the number of daily doses administered by 10-fold, to about 700,000. Japan and Australia, adjusted for population, are administering more doses daily right now than the U.S. or Israel, where daily uptake has slowed.
The vaccination pace has slowed in countries that have distributed doses widely and are now facing declining demand and hesitancy. The U.S. has vaccinated 52% of its population, and Israel, where the world’s fastest rollout occurred, has reached 63%.
About one in five people in Asia have received a single vaccine dose, doubling since early May, but still behind the 37% in Europe and 40% in North America, according to Our World in Data’s most-recent figures. Nearly three-quarters of the world’s daily vaccinations are now administered in Asia, up from roughly half just weeks ago.
Having Asia finally rev up, following months of shortages as the initial supply largely went to the West, has boosted some global rollout projections. Related
