Vaccination pace slowed down this week in Latvia

In the first four days of this week, the pace of vaccination against Covid-19 in Latvia was well below that of last week, LETA reported June 11.

According to the latest data compiled by the National Health Service (NVD), 77,795 people were vaccinated in the first four days of last week and single-day vaccination records were reached, for example, on June 2, 21,816 people got a jab and on June 3, 21,635 people were vaccinated. This week, however 63,050 people were vaccinated in four days, down 18.95% from the previous week.

The number of people vaccinated in recent days could still increase in the statistics, as not all medics enter data in the system immediately.

On Thursday, June 10, according to current NVD data, 13,961 people received the vaccine against Covid-19 in Latvia, including 3,601 people getting the first dose of the vaccine, 9,104 the second, while 1,256 people were vaccinated with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

On Thursday, 3,317 first doses of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 4,433 second doses of this vaccine, 256 first doses of Moderna vaccine and 1,898 second doses of this vaccine, 28 first doses of AstraZeneca vaccine and 2,773 second doses of this vaccine, and 1256 J & J vaccine doses were administered, according to NVD data.

Thus, so far 520,992 people have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine in Latvia, while 398,427 people have completed the vaccination process. A total of 919,419 injections have been administered. 

According to data from the Central Statistical Bureau, there were a provisional population of 1,887,600 people in Latvia at the beginning of April 2021, so 27.6% of the population have received the first dose against Covid-19 and 21.11% have received both.
