Poland is ahead of all the largest European Union countries in terms of the number of daily Covid-19 vaccine doses administered per 100 people, according to statistics published by UK portal Our World in Data.

Currently, 2.9 vaccinations per 100 inhabitants are conducted in Poland, the same rate as in Spain, data from the Oxford University portal shows.

The largest EU countries have lower rates than Poland - Germany has 2.65 doses administered for every 100 people, France 1.82 and Italy - 2.83.

The data include immunisations performed to January 28.

At the moment, Malta is the pacesetter in the whole EU conducting 5.33 vaccinations per 100 in a day. Denmark is second in this ranking with a 3.82 rate, and Slovenia is third with a rate of 3.41. Poland holds the ninth position in the bloc.

Our World in Data statistics show the rolling 7-day average per 100 people in the total population. This is counted as a single dose, and may not equal the total number of people vaccinated, depending on the specific dose regime.
