Since the first case of COVID-19 in Latin America and the Caribbean was reported in Brazil on February 26, 2020, the region has reported nearly 22.2 million cases and more than 700,000 COVID-related deaths. Countries have actively worked to secure vaccines through bilateral and multilateral arrangements, including agreements with Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Russia’s Sputnik V, and China’s CoronaVac.
As of March 9, 2021, twenty Latin American and Caribbean countries have authorized emergency use of COVID-19 vaccines: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Our interactive maps track the percentage of the population of each Latin American and Caribbean country covered by current vaccine agreements; the total number of doses secured by each country and breakdown by supplier/vaccine; where each vaccine is being used across the region; and how many vaccines flow from each major producing country to regional destinations. The interactive maps are updated on a biweekly basis.
The map below demonstrates the flow of vaccines by the manufacturer’s main country of origin to the Latin American countries covered by current vaccine agreements.
