Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 155.37 million vaccine doses have been administered as of May 23rd, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 65.18 million people who have received at least one vaccination (77.6 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 28.56 million people (34.0 percent).
58.56 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Iran (= 69.7 percent).

Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Iran is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 1.6 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 100,000 physicians in Iran, there are about 1.14 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Due to the low level of care, the mortality of major known diseases can only be reduced in comparatively few cases. According to current information, about 15 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) still die.
