A closer look: Why has the UK vaccination rate slowed? | Corona Virus

The UK has lost its place as Europe’s vaccine leader in recent months, with countries such as France, Italy and Spain jumping to it in terms of the proportion of people fully vaccinated.

Throughout September, the UK vaccinated an average of 1,461 people per million per day, well below the 3,925 in Italy, 3,694 in France, 3,280 in Spain and 2,305 in Germany.

The UK’s vaccination rate was the fastest in Europe until the end of April, according to data from Our world in data. At that point, the UK had vaccinated more than one in five people (22.5%), compared to a maximum of 10.3% among Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
