On Sunday, 63 people received their first jab against Covid-19 in Latvia, and no one received the second dose of the vaccine, according to the latest data compiled by the National Health Service (NVD), LETA reported March 8.

Consequently, on Sunday, vaccination rates went down more than ten times since Saturday, when 715 people were vaccinated against Covid-19.

Previously, fewer than 100 people were vaccinated in Latvia on February 14, when one person received the first dose and 20 received the second.

Sunday, 62 seniors and one medical practitioner received their shots against Covid-19. All of them received an AstraZeneca vaccine, according to data from NVD.

Currently, 64,172 people have received the first dose of vaccine against Covid-19 in Latvia and 17,994 people have received both doses. According to data from the Central Statistical Bureau, on 1 January 2021 there were a provisional  1.894 million inhabitants in Latvia. This means 3.39% of the population have got the first jab against Covid-19 and only  0.95% have got the second.

Vaccination in Latvia began more than two months ago, on December 28, 2020. As previously reported, the biggest issue currently is the availability of vaccines, and the problem is likely to linger for a while.
