The first fifteen doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine against Covid-19 were administered yesterday in Latvia, LETA reported April 28.

According to data from the National Health Service (NSAs), a total of 5,773 people were vaccinated on Tuesday, of that number 3,831 people received the first shot and the second shot was received by 1,942.

Vaccination in Latvia this week has started at a slower pace than the previous week.

Overall, 227,436 people have received the first dose of Covid-19 in Latvia, while both doses have been received by 42,081 people. In the case of Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), only one dose is required to complete the vaccination process and two doses for the other vaccines. This vaccine is used in cases when a person has issues getting to a vaccination location and in cases where a person is unlikely to show up for the second dose, like the homeless population.
