RIGA - Next week, the first medics will start receiving their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, which will strengthen the acquired immunity, Anna Strapcane, a representative of the Ministry of Health, informed LETA.

As a result, the vaccination rate in the coming weeks will be similar to that observed in previous weeks.

Vaccination points will continue to work to ensure that the second dose of the vaccine is given to those who were the first to get vaccinated at the end of last year.

For the vaccine to work, two doses must be given to one person as instructed. The doses of vaccine that were intended for the first vaccination phase are now almost used up. The first vaccination phase will resume when Latvia receives the next vaccines, the Ministry of Health points out.

Latvia has so far received a total of 31,4256 doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
