Is it possible to annotate each person individually with VEP?

I'm running variant effect predictor on VCF with 100 individuals. Is there a build in way to annotate each sample separately and make stats out of it, e.g. distribution of number of pathogenic variants in the population of individuals?

split the vcf per sample and annotate. Splitting vcf files to individual samples

VEP annotates variants; not individuals, so you'll be getting the same variant-level annotations. It's more efficient to annotate the vcf; then split it out per sample for statistics -- or you could use bcftools query in combination with bcftools stats -s <sample_id> to compute such counts without needing to split out individual VCFs. (Or: Use a vcf library in your language of choice for fine control of filters)
