One in ten Latvian residents has the booster vaccine

A little over 10% of the population have got the booster shot in Latvia, according to data compiled by the National Health Service (NVD), LETA reported December 20.

According to data from the Central Statistical Bureau, there were a provisional 1,882,200 inhabitants in Latvia at the beginning of July 2021. In total, 69.12% of the population have received at least the first shot or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine against Covid-19, while 66.05% of the population have completed the vaccination process, of which 15.38% have received the booster vaccine, according to LETA estimates.

The booster has thus been received by 10.16% of the population or 191,246 people.

As the pace of booster shots increases, people's interest in first-time vaccinations continues to decrease. Only 5,386 people got the first shot last week. Accordingly, the number of second-dose recipients is also decreasing.

Up to now, 274 children aged five to eleven years have received the vaccine against Covid-19. Vaccination of children started on December 16.
