Global Vaccination Coverage skyrocketed from 20% to 86% since 1980

Global Vaccination Coverage skyrocketed from 20% to 86% since 1980


Well….there is not much more to say then what I wrote in the headline. Except maybe that this chart only covers Diphtheria-, tetanus- and pertussis containing vaccines (DTP3).

The blue line shows the degree of vaccination coverage in High-Income Countries, the red line shows global coverage and the green line shows coverage in Low-Income Countries.

It is unbelievable to see how much we’ve accomplished in 35 years.

This chart is from Bill Gates Blog gatesnotes.com. More specifically from Bill and Melinda Gates’ 2017 annual letter, especially dedicated to Warren Buffet and his gigantic donation (the biggest single donation anyone has ever made!!!). It is a wonderful peace of writing that should be mandatory for everyone! You can also go to the Facebook page of this blog and check it out right there.
