COVID-19 vaccination status in ASEAN

The latest status on the vaccination programmes in the ASEAN countries, including the doses administered and the types of vaccines used.

Many countries have kicked off their COVID-19 vaccination programme, including most ASEAN countries. As of mid-March 2021, out of the over 400 million vaccine doses administered worldwide, ASEAN countries have administered close to 9 million doses. The latest reported data shows that Indonesia currently holds the lead in the region, with over 6.5 million vaccine doses administered. On the other hand, Brunei has yet to report any doses. AstraZeneca’s vaccine, under the COVAX program, is the most popular in the region, forming at least part of the vaccination programme in 8 ASEAN countries, with Sinovac coming in second. Singapore is the only ASEAN country to go with the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

Note: Some countries do not provide data for the number of people who have been partially or fully vaccinated.

The data is compiled from government sources by the New York Times’ Our World in Data project at the University of Oxford. A vaccinated person refers to someone who has received at least one dose of a vaccine, and a fully vaccinated person has received all required doses of a vaccine. For the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, a person who is “fully vaccinated” has received two doses.
