In order to get a closer look at vaccination trends, we broke the data up by regions below, and organized the countries by rank, instead of absolute values. If vaccines were distributed purely according to how rich a country is, then countries’ ranks on the two measures would be similar. In the charts below that linkage appears as flat, parallel lines—and unfortunately there are a lot of them.

To create these charts we used vaccination data collected by Bloomberg through April 8, 2022 and 2020 per-capita GDP figures from the World Bank. Countries without available figures in either metric were excluded.
