It was planned that 13,439 doses would be delivered; however, only a little more than half of that number - 7,200 - was received.
NVD spokeswoman Anna Karolīna Šaule said that information was already received on 22 January about possible supply cuts for European Union member states, including Latvia. Therefore, fewer vaccines were delivered than previously planned.
The next dose of vaccine is scheduled to be delivered on 13 February – 9,600 doses of vaccine, 22,621 vaccine doses on 20 February, 32,896 vaccine doses on 3 March.
NVD recalled that the planned supply of doses of Covid-19 vaccines is variable and depending on the manufacturer's ability to ensure the availability of vaccines.
Quarterly deliveries and volumes of the vaccine promised by the manufacturer AstraZeneca:
• In Q1, 172 317 doses of vaccines;
• in Q2, 845 179 doses of vaccines;
• In Q3, 254 374 doses of vaccines.
Company responsible for the storage and logistics of “AstraZeneca” vaccines in Latvia is Vakcīna, Ltd.
