Approximately 34.5% of Latvians / Diena have completed the vaccination process


Of all 2404 people vaccinated on Wednesday, the first dose of the vaccine has been received. Most of these people were vaccinated with the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine, while about 2,163 people were vaccinated with the Spikevax (Modern) vaccine.

On Wednesday, the vaccination process was completed by 2,526 people after receiving the second vaccine. Most of them have been vaccinated with Pfizer / BioNTech, 25 have received Spikevax (Modern) and 126 have received AstraZeneca.

Another 1,175 people received the Johnson & Johnson or Janssen vaccine, which requires only one dose, yesterday.

However, these data are subject to change, as many vaccination authorities enter data on vaccinated systems with a delay of several days.

So far, 34.12% of the population in Latvia have received the first dose of vaccine, but 34.49% have completed the vaccination process. The proportion of the population fully vaccinated is slightly higher than that of the first vaccine, as Johnson & Johnson requires only one dose, after which a person is considered to be fully vaccinated.

Since the beginning of the summer, there has been a significant decline in the number of vaccinated people in Latvia. For example, during the busiest vaccinations in May and early June, only slightly fewer people could be vaccinated in one day than at present during the week. For example, on May 28, when a record number of vaccinees was set in one day, 24,620 people received vaccinations.

So far, the highest vaccination rates have been in the week of May 24, when an average of about 16,600 people were vaccinated per day. For 10 weeks in a row, more than 100,000 people have been vaccinated in Latvia every week for 10 weeks in a row, but since the beginning of the summer, these figures have been falling.

Four Covid-19 vaccines are currently approved for use in the European Union – “Pfizer” https://www.diena.lv/ “BioNTech”, “Moderna”, “AstraZeneca” and “Johnson & Johnson” or “Janssen”. On December 28 last year, vaccination of employees of large hospitals was the first in Latvia to be vaccinated against Covid-19, but more mass vaccination of the population began at the end of March.
