99% of Yemenis unvaccinated as virus spreads: Oxfam  

People queue to receive a dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine at a vaccination center on the outskirts of Yemen's embattled province of Marib in the country's northeast, on July 7, 2021.

Ninety-nine percent of Yemenis are unvaccinated against COVID-19, Oxfam said Wednesday, as the region’s poorest country battles a third wave of the virus. 

Less than 1% of Yemen’s population of 30.5 million has received one dose of the vaccine and just 0.05% is fully vaccinated, the aid agency said.
