Summary

The results of a national sample survey to estimate complete covid-19 vaccination coverage in Venezuela are reported. The survey was conducted between September 15 and 25, 2021 in population centers of 1,000 and more inhabitants. A total of 1,200 people aged 18 years and older were interviewed. Interviews were conducted directly in people’s homes. Complete vaccination coverage against covid-19 corresponds to 16.6% of the population. The age group with the highest complete coverage is those aged 50 and over (39.5%). Complete coverage in the Metropolitan District of Caracas (MDC) is 22.8%, in the main cities 15.7%, and in the rest of the country 15.8%. Complete coverage is higher in the A/B/C socioeconomic level (19.7%). The population that is not vaccinated and does not want to be vaccinated corresponds to 18.2%. The complete coverage reported indicates that Venezuela ranks 17th (out of 20 countries) in Latin America, when compared with the data available to date in Our World in Data.
