Haiti: Less Than 1.5% ‘Full’ Vax Rate—Zero New COVID Cases

Only 31,704 confirmed cases of COVID since the start of the pandemic.

  • The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that only 837 people have died of coronavirus in the nation of Haiti since the pandemic began.
  • The nation is only 1.4% “fully” vaccinated against coronavirus out of its 11.6 million population, making it one of the least vaccinated countries on the planet.
  • Haiti showed zero new coronavirus infections as of Thursday, compared to 124,621 new cases in the U.S.—whose population is 79% vaccinated (67.5% “fully”)—on the same day.
  • One tracking metric showed that there were only about 2 COVID-19 infections per 100k people in the island nation.
  • Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Haiti are the least vaccinated countries in the world against COVID.
  • Countries with low vaccination rates also having low COVID infection rates while countries with high vaccination rates have high COVID infection rates raises questions about the vaccine’s efficacy and legitimacy.
  • “In Haiti, from 3 January 2020 to 5:03 pm CEST, 7 July 2022, there have been 31,703 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 837 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 24 June 2022, a total of 342,724 vaccine doses have been administered,” according to the data from WHO.
  • The nation of Haiti has administered at least 342,724 doses of COVID vaccines so far, meaning that if every person needs 2 doses to be fully vaccinated, that makes about 1.5% of the population fully vaccinated.
  • The nation’s infection rate is currently at 18% of its peak percentage of cases.
  • Currently, Haiti is only beat out for lower vaccination rates by the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi.
  • Just 0.05% of Burundi’s population have received at least one dose of COVID vaccinations, and 0.4% of people in DR Congo have been vaccinated at all.
  • Other African countries with low vaccination rates include Chad, Madagascar, and Tanzania, whose immunization rates range from 1.5% to 4%.
