Record number of second vaccine doses administered Wednesday in Latvia

A relatively large number of people were vaccinated against Covid-19 in Latvia on Wednesday, and also the largest number of people who received the second dose of the vaccine was recorded, according to the latest data compiled by the National Health Service (NSS).

On Wednesday, a total of 11,704 people were vaccinated against Covid-19 in Latvia, of whom 5,703 received the first dose of the vaccine, and 5,933 - the second dose, but 68 people were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires only one dose.

According to the latest National Health Service data, the largest number of people vaccinated against Covid-19 in Latvia in one day was recorded on April 28, when 14,170 people were vaccinated, but on April 29, 13,353 people were vaccinated.

On the other hand, the number of people who received the second dose of the vaccine - 5,933 - was the highest on Wednesday, surpassing the indicator of April 29, when 3,802 people received the second dose of the vaccine.

However, the number of people vaccinated in recent days could increase, as not all medics report data on their vaccines to the National Health Service on the same day that the patient is vaccinated.

To date, 280,797 people have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in Latvia, but 60,647 people have completed the vaccination process. A total of 341,444 injections of Covid-19 have been administered in the country.

According to the data of the Central Statistical Bureau, on January 1, 2021, Latvia had a provisional population of 1.894 million, so 14.83 percent of the population have received the first vaccine dose against Covid-19, but 3.2 percent have completed the vaccination process.
