The number of first plugs is the highest in over two months


In the last 24 hours, 4,865 people have received the first injection of a corona vaccine.

This is the highest number in one day since the end of August. It shows figures from the Statens Serum Institut (SSI).

The number of first stabs has increased in the wake of Monday’s press conference at the Prime Minister’s Office, where the government announced that the corona passport would return.

At the same time, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S) came out with a harsh criticism of the citizens who have not been vaccinated – and she encouraged them to take the plunge.

Although the number of first bites increased on Tuesday, it is miles away from the busiest days in the vaccination centers in early July, when the vaccines became available to anyone over the age of 12.

In early July, there were several days where 40,000-50,000 people got their first plug.

However, the number of first plugs is about three times as high as the average since September 1st.

75.3 percent of the population is fully vaccinated against covid-19. That equates to more than 4.42 million people. In addition, 77,006 – corresponding to 1.3 percent – received the first plug, but are missing number two.

Just under 1.4 million have not been vaccinated. However, only about 640,000 are invited for a vaccine, as the rest are children under 12 years of age.

This is how it goes with the different groups

Read here how the vaccination of the different groups is going:

First revaccination:

Selected groups are offered third plugs. These are, among others, nursing home residents, citizens with particularly weakened immune systems and citizens who are 85 years or older.

The Danish Health and Medicines Authority has announced that it will also give third vaccines to fully vaccinated people over the age of 65, six months and 14 days after they have received another vaccination.

In total, 413,701 citizens have received a third vaccine sting in connection with revaccination. That equates to 7.0 percent of the population.

Group 1-9:

Vaccine groups 1-9 include citizens over the age of 65, health professionals, the particularly vulnerable and their relatives.

In this group, 1,562,477 received the first injection of a vaccine. This corresponds to 96.9 percent of the target group. 1,556,205 – corresponding to 96.6 percent of the target group – have been vaccinated.

Group 10A: Citizens aged 60-64:

Started: 265,677 people (94.0 percent).

Vaccinated: 264,515 93.6 percent).

10B: Citizens aged 55-59 years:

Started: 322,161 (92.7).

Completely vaccinated: 320,268 (92.1).

10C: Citizens aged 50-54:

Started: 309,919 (91.3).

Completely vaccinated: 307,427 (90.5).

10D1: Citizens aged 16-19 and 45-49:

Started: 233,484 (87.7).

Completely vaccinated: 228,125 (86.2).

10D2: Citizens aged 20-24 and 40-44:

Started: 302,400 (81.9).

Completely vaccinated: 298,910 (79.8).

10D3: Citizens aged 25-29 and 35-39:

Started: 278,302 (77.2).

Completely vaccinated: 268,596 (74.5).

10D4: Citizens aged 30-34 years:

Started: 260,306 (75.5).

Completely vaccinated: 255,823 (72.3).

Group 11: Citizens aged 12-15:

Started: 278,394 (68.1).

Completely vaccinated: 266,978 (63.4).

The inventory only includes the vaccinated citizens who are still alive and resident in Denmark.

The Statens Serum Institut (SSI) calculates the number of vaccinated in relation to the population and not the number of people to be vaccinated.

SSI does this because the institute wants to assess how close Denmark is to herd immunity.

Note that the number of people who have received the first bite also includes those who have completed the vaccination. Those who have received the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson, which requires only one sting, are also included in both figures.

SSI points out that there may be a delay in the registration of the given vaccines.
