Over 700,000 people fully vaccinated in Latvia

Currently, 702,293 people have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in Latvia, which is 37.21% of the country's population, according to data compiled by the National Health Service (NVD), newswire LETA said August 9.

A total of 30,869 people received the vaccine in Latvia last week, with an average of 4,410 people per day. The number last week is the lowest since mid-spring - 26,661 people were vaccinated in the first week of April, then the number of vaccinated people climbed each week, peaking in the last week of May when 116,804 people were vaccinated.

Last week, a total of 14,537 people received the first dose of the vaccine, 11,843 got the second dose, while a further 4,489 people were vaccinated with a vaccine produced by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (J & J), which needs only one dose.

The pace of vaccination in Latvia continues to fall. This trend is seen almost throughout the second half of the summer.

36.28% of the population have received the first dose of the vaccine against Covid-19, while the vaccination process has been completed by 37.21% of the population. 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.
