British Overseas Territories leading the world in Covid vaccine rollout according to published data.
The success of the vaccine delivery and rollout program in the British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies is a great untold story that is resulting in some of the highest percentages of protected populations in the world, according to data published on the Our World in Data website. Apart from the efficiency of the local administration involved, credit also goes to the logistical planning of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office working with the Department of Health & Social Care as well as the Royal Air Force. This is the global British family pulling together.
