The Our World in Data COVID Vaccination dataset has been published in the academic journal, Nature

The Our World in Data COVID-19 Vaccination dataset is open-access, free and available for everyone to use at our Coronavirus Vaccinations page.

At Our World in Data we have been tracking the global rollout of COVID vaccinations since December 2020. It has become the go-to source for international organizations (such as the World Health Organization), policymakers, and journalists (such as the New York Times, Financial Times, The Economist, and the BBC). Our dataset is cited thousands of times every week in publications around the world.

Our COVID vaccination dataset brings together global data from official sources. It includes many relevant metrics such as doses administered, daily vaccinations, the breakdown of first and second doses, and population-adjusted metrics.

Our COVID vaccination dataset is published in Nature Human Behaviour

We submitted our vaccination dataset and the accompanying academic paper to the peer-reviewed journal Nature Human Behaviour. It was just published there.

The paper describes the dataset and how it is compiled in detail. You can find the manuscript here at the website of Nature:
