According to Oxfam, fewer than 1% of Yemenis have received a single vaccine dose and only 0.05% are fully vaccinated.

Iran PressMiddle East: Oxfam, the International Relief Foundation for the Eradication of Poverty, Hunger and Injustice, said in a statement that less than one percent of the country's 30 million people have received one dose of the coronavirus jab and only Half a percent of Yemenis are fully vaccinated against the virus.

The country is relying on vaccines from the global Covax program, but only 500,000 doses out of a promised 4.2 million have reached Yemen so far.

The director of Oxfam's Yemen office, Mohsen Siddiqi while criticizing the global discrimination in the distribution of the coronavirus vaccine, added that it is shameful that some rich countries oppose the abolition of patent protection for the vaccines, which could reduce prices and speed up the distribution in poor countries.

The unfair distribution of coronavirus vaccines around the world has been met with protests from the World Health Organization and other international organizations.

The Saudi military aggression has also left the poor country of Yemen severely short of food and medicine. 219
