Experts are clear: the only way out of the COVID-19 nightmare is to vaccinate as many people as possible.

Now, with several jabs approved, Europe is ramping up inoculations against the disease.

But who is making the best progress? Here we pull together the latest figures to compare how European countries are getting on.

The United Kingdom leading the rest of Europe

The UK, which approved its first COVID-19 vaccine on December 2, nearly three weeks before the EU, is racing ahead with immunising its people.

Latest data shows the country has vaccinated more people (10.9 million) – more than Germany, Italy, France and Spain combined.

Who has made the best progress, relatively speaking?

The UK has administered the most vaccines overall, but it also leads the table of per capita immunisations.

Malta is third in the table of vaccinations per 100,000 people and is the only EU country in the top four.

Serbia is second and Iceland fourth.

About this data

The data is pulled together from official government sources and media reports. There is no central collection of vaccine figures and not all countries publish figures at this early stage.
