The cantons of Nidwalden (14.18 per 100) and Appenzell Innerrhoden (13.82 per 100) led on vaccination dose rates. The cantons of Zurich (7.19), Bern (7.87) and St. Gallen (7.87) were the slowest. Vaud (9.34) and Geneva (9.08) were in the middle.
An average of 19,666 vaccinations per day were done this week, a rate 5% above last week’s 18,703 per day. At the average rate achieved this week, it would take until November 2022 to vaccinate 70% of Switzerland’s population, assuming two doses per person.
