3,300 people got a jab on first day of 'live queue'

In Rīga, Jelgava and Jūrmala together, 3,300 people got their Covid-19 jab on the first day of general population vaccination on a first come, first serve basis.

In all centers, queues had to be closed earlier than planned working hours because of the great interest. Conversely, not all doses were administered.
