Vaccination pace picked up last week in Latvia

Vaccination rates increased significantly last week, representatives of Health Ministry told LSM April 11.

More than 26,500 people were vaccinated last week, according to official statistics, the highest number in one week so far. Last week also saw a record number of vaccinated persons in a single day, 8,542 people on Wednesday.

Health Ministry said that vaccination rates were boosted by a number of aspects: more than 70,740 doses of Covid-19 vaccines received in Latvia last week, as well as two initial experiments important for the vaccination process – the operation of large-scale vaccination centers in the first half of the week, as well as the trial of the live queue on April 10, which saw more than 1,000 people getting their jabs. 

In order to be able to continue the smooth course of vaccination, it is important that anyone who wants to be vaccinated applies on the site manavakcina.lv or on the phone 8989, said the Minister for Health Daniels Pavļuts.

At least one dose of vaccine against Covid-19 has so far been administered in approximately 9.5% of Latvia's population, with total doses of 177,010 vaccines used for vaccination in Latvia.
