A new study by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) shows that China and India have surpassed 100% vaccine coverage rates for the first time in 2021, putting the two nations at a significant head-start.
China is on track for a 100.4% vaccine uptake by 2021, and India is close behind at 100.5%.
India and China will overtake Japan in 2021 and Japan in 2024, respectively, to reach 100.9% vaccine penetration, IIASA President and CEO, Stephen Dubner, told Business Insider.
“These are historic numbers,” Dubner said.
“This is the first year we’ve been able to say that China is on the same path as Japan.
This is the year that the other two countries will come out ahead.”
The IIASF study shows that in 2021 India and China have surpassed Japan to reach the top spot in the global immunization tracking.
India’s vaccine coverage rate was 99.6% in 2021 compared to 98.6 percent for Japan.
China’s vaccine penetration rate was 97.9%.
India was the only country in the world that was able to achieve a 90% vaccine completion rate by 2020, according to IIASB.
China and India were ranked first and second, respectively.
In 2021, India and the United States were the only two countries in the top five, according a study by IHS Jane’s, and China was third.
Dubner said the data shows that the vaccine delivery system is now ready to deliver a universal, universal vaccine to all people, regardless of their religious or national origin.
“That’s why it’s so important for us to deliver universal coverage,” Dubber said.
“We’re doing that through a universal coverage program that’s really designed to help everyone.”
India is on course to deliver its first national universal vaccination by 2021.
The country’s population is projected to reach around 1 billion by 2021 and it has the highest coverage of any developed country.
Dubner noted that the two countries are already ahead of the U.S. in terms of the vaccine coverage numbers.
“We have an extremely high percentage of people that are actually immunized.
In fact, the U:S.
is on pace to be immunized by 2021,” Dub, said.”
So, we have a very good opportunity to accelerate our work on the global vaccine delivery program to meet the goal of universal coverage.”IIASC has been monitoring the health of the world for more than 30 years and is the world’s largest development and economics research institute.
Its research is based on the theory that human development is a complex process of social, economic, and political factors.
It is also the foundation of the World Bank, World Health Organization, U.N. and other organizations.
The IIA is a research arm of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Washington, D.C. Dubner noted it was the first and only country that has been able at the same time to reach two milestones at the 100% and 100.7% level in a single year.
“I can’t say that we had the best year, but it was better than we expected,” Dub said.
IHS Jane.s report states that India and Indonesia are on pace for a 95% and 96.3% vaccine completions respectively, the highest and second-highest in the series, respectively (India’s 94.7%).
India and India are close behind China in 2021 (95.6%).
Dubner highlighted that India has one of the highest rates of vaccination uptake in the developed world.
India has achieved the 100.6th vaccination completion rate, and the country has already surpassed the U.:S.
to reach 97.7%.
“I think this is very encouraging,” Dubcher said.
