Over 35% of population fully vaccinated in Latvia

Over the last week, the proportion of Latvia's fully vaccinated population increased by approximately 1.25 percentage points, according to July 29 estimates by LETA, based on data compiled by the National Health Service (NVD).

Data at the disposal of NVD just over a week ago showed that by July 21, 34.49% of all Latvian residents had completed the vaccination process. On Thursday, July 29, data show that 35.74% of Latvia's population have completed the process. 

NVD data on the last few days could still change as medics continue entering data into the system.

A total of 1,334,952 injections against Covid-19 have been carried out in Latvia so far, including 660,351 people who have received the first dose of the vaccine, while the vaccination process has been concluded by 674,601 people. 

According to the data of the CSB, there was a provisional population of 1,887,600 in Latvia at the beginning of April 2021, thus 34.98% of the population have received the first dose of the vaccine against Covid-19, while 35.74% of the population have completed the vaccination process. The proportion of the fully vaccinated population is slightly higher than the proportion of the first-shot population, since the J & J vaccine requires only one dose after which the person is considered to be fully vaccinated.
