In numbers: A COVID-19 shot of hope?

A closer look at Kosovo’s vaccine roll out.

Since our lives were first turned upside down in early 2020, we’ve repeatedly heard how vaccines will help bring the pandemic to an end. 

Now, just over a year later, an unprecedented global vaccination program is in full swing, with over 1.5 billion doses already administered by mid-May. As a result, some richer countries are well on the way to vaccinating their populations. But others, including Kosovo, have been left playing catch up. 

Kosovo’s first COVID-19 vaccines arrived at the end of March and they have been followed by a steady trickle of supply. Thousands of those most at risk have now received their first jabs, but for the majority of citizens, there is still no clear idea of when their turn to get a vaccine might come.

With talk of vaccines regularly filling the news, we take a closer look at the numbers behind the headlines to show the current state of Kosovo’s COVID-19 vaccine roll out.
