Airfinity vaccination forecasts predict 101 countries will not meet any of the WHO targets by September 2021.
The WHO have presented targets for population vaccination coverage based on income bands of countries to protect: (1) health care workers and reduce mortality (50+ yrs), (2) protect the health care system (30+ yrs), (3) reduce disease burden (20+ yrs) and (4) reduce transmission.
All countries due to meet the target to reduce transmission are Higher Income Countries (HICs). 70% of countries due to reach the target of reducing disease burden are HIC with the remaining 30% Upper Middle Income Countries (UMIC).
For example, Spain is due to reach 75% population vaccinated on 26th August 2021 while Niger will have only vaccinated healthcare workers and the high risk population by the 23rd August 2021.
