COVID-19 vaccine rollout: How do countries in Europe compare?

Experts are clear: the only way out of the COVID-19 nightmare is to vaccinate as many people as possible.

Now, with several jabs approved, Europe is ramping up inoculations against the disease.

But who is making the best progress? Here we pull together the latest figures to compare how European countries are getting on.

What percentage of the population is fully vaccinated?

While the UK is leading the rest of Europe on total vaccinations, other countries are ahead in terms of the percentage of their population fully vaccinated against the disease, which usually means two doses of the jab.

The UK, keen to get a first jab in as many people as possible, is waiting longer than other countries to administer the second one.
