Latvia's Pfizer vaccine stocks start to run low

Latvia hopes to borrow or receive as a donation up to 200,000 Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines from Lithuania, the Minister for Health Daniels Pavļuts said at a press conference after the government meeting November 2.

He said that, in view of the rapid vaccination against Covid-19 in Latvia and the scheduled small delivery of Pfizer/BionNTech vacines, there is a certain shortage of these vaccines.

The government has authorized the Health Minister to sign an agreement with Lithuania that it could lend or donate up to 200,000 vaccines to Latvia.

According to the Ministry of Health, Latvia currently has 77,274 Pfizer vaccines, 183,900 – Moderna, 51,300 Johnson & Johnson and 67,500 AstraZeneca.
