Vaccinated people by canton of residence

The data published here is based on information provided to us regularly by the cantons and the Principality of Liechtenstein. We publish the numbers on the following day. Therefore, they may differ from the numbers communicated by the cantons and Liechtenstein. The figures include vaccines from all suppliers.

Vaccinated people are assigned to the canton in which they live (canton of residence). People who have received a single dose of vaccine and who have recovered from a SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2-infection are deemed fully vaccinated people in accordance with the FOPH/NITAG vaccination recommendation.

The cantons and the Principality of Liechtenstein provide us with the data via a secure electronic channel. They are sent in the form of anonymised individual data.

Demography

Vaccinated people, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, 21.12.2020 to 17.10.2021

The graph shows the development of the number of vaccinated people. A review of the data revealed that in the 0–9 age group the entries were mainly incorrect. We are not aware of systematic vaccination of under 12s. In the interests of transparency, we publish the data we receive from the cantons without making any changes.

Ratio of risk groups to other people

Fully vaccinated people, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, 21.12.2020 to 17.10.2021

The graph shows the ratio of fully vaccinated people in risk groups 1 to 4 to other people. “Other” may also include groups as per cantonal vaccination strategies.

The COVID-⁠19 vaccination strategy prioritises people by risk groups (target groups 1 to 4) and all other people (target group 5). The risk groups comprise people at an increased risk of falling seriously ill, infection or transmission.
The personnel administering the vaccination check that the person belongs to the relevant group.

7-⁠day values: the bars represent the ratio each week.
Total: The areas represent the cumulative ratio up to the corresponding point in time. The ratio can be displayed as percentages of “fully vaccinated people” or in relation to the entire population.
Due to mathematical rounding, the sum of the percentages may not be exactly 100%.

The graph shows the number of fully vaccinated people per indication. “Other” refers to everyone not belonging to the risk groups as per the COVID-⁠19 vaccination strategy.
