Over 1.16 billion COVID-19 vaccine jabs have been given worldwide so far, according to data gathered by the Our World in Data website.
China is the world's most vaccinated country with 275.3 million vaccine jabs, said the site, followed by the US with nearly 245.6 million, India with 154.2 million, the UK with 49.8 million, Brazil with 43.2 million, Germany with 30.2 million, and Turkey with nearly 23.9 million vaccine jabs.

Next comes the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with 10.6 million vaccine jabs and Israel with 10.5 million.
The country with the most doses of the vaccine in terms of the population was the East African island nation of Seychelles, with 128.98 doses per 100 people.
It was followed by Israel with 120.8 vaccine jabs, the UAE with 107.5 per 100 people, San Marino with 85.4, Chile with 77.7, Malta with 76.9, Bahrain with 74.3, and Maldives with 73.9.

Turkey number 7 in number of vaccinations
According to Health Ministry data, Turkey has so far administered over 23.88 million coronavirus vaccine jabs since a nationwide immunization campaign began on Jan. 14.
More than 14.19 million people have received their first dose, while over 9.69 million people have been fully vaccinated.
Turkey ranks seventh in the world in terms of total number of vaccine doses administered, while the number of vaccines per 100 people was 27.28.
In the distribution of vaccine by continent, Asia ranked first with 550.8 million vaccines, followed by North America with 283.3 million and Europe with 230.4 million.
Unfortunately, the continent and regions in the Southern Hemisphere lagged behind those in the North.
Some 77 million vaccine jabs have been done in South America, 17.96 million in Africa, and 2.56 million in Oceania.
Most COVID-19 vaccines are administered in two jabs, so the number of vaccine jabs administered does not mean that the vaccination of the same number of individuals has been completed.
COVID-19 has become a global epidemic, spreading to more than 200 countries and regions.
According to the Worldometer website, the number of cases worldwide is nearly 153.7 million, while more than 3.21 million people have died due to the virus, and 90.37 million people have recovered.
