Half of all vaccines administered in Latvia last week were booster shots

Last week, around half of the vaccines administered in Latvia were used for booster shots, according to LETA's estimates using data from the National Health Service (NVD) December 6.

In total, 63,341 people received the vaccine against Covid-19 in Latvia over the past seven days, and approximately half or 31,019 of them got the booster. Although the pace of boosters is rising, the level of first doses is dropping significantly. Only 7,278 people received their first Covid-19 vaccines last week, the smallest figure in a long time and six times lower than in mid-October.

The total number may still increase in the past week, as vaccination data are entered with a lag of several days. 

The number of second shots, compared to the week between 22 and 28 October, has also fallen to 21 424. A further 3620 people were vaccinated with the “Janssen” vaccine.

A total of 1.282 million people have got at least one dose in Latvia, of which 1.2 million people have already completed the vaccination course, while 96,617 people have already got the booster.

Thus a total of 68.16% of the population have begun vaccination, 64.15% have completed primary vaccination, of which 8% have got the booster, according to LETA's calculations. the population receiving support vaccine against Covid-19 and 64.15% of the population receiving support vaccine 8%.
