Half of Latvia's population fully vaccinated

Vaccination against Covid-19 has been completed by half of all Latvian residents, according to data from the National Health Service (NVD) October 19.

Around 849,000 of all residents, or 45%, have got the first jab, of whom 756,000 have got the second dose, while a further 185,000 have got the single-dose vaccine. This means a total of 941,000 or 50% of the total population have completed the vaccination process.

The total number of first-dose and Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients has reached around 1.03 million people. Meanwhile, around 2,600 people, or 0.14% of the population, have been vaccinated with the booster.

After the government's decision, many workers are required to vaccinate against Covid-19, and vaccination activity continues to remain quite high in Latvia.

On Monday, at least 9,393 people received jabs against Covid-19, more than last week on Monday, when about 9,000 people were vaccinated. Of the total, 5,050 people got the first jab and the vaccination process was completed by 4,103 people including 2,588 getting the single-dose jab.

A further 240 people received a third dose.

All of these data may still change as many vaccination authorities enter data in the systems later.
