Two thirds of the Finnish population, or about 66 per cent, have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This means that a total of about 3.7 million people have received at least one vaccination.
About 34 percent of the population has now received the second dose, or about 1.9 million people have received the full vaccination series.
“Eighty per cent of the adult population, over the age of 18, will soon have received the first dose. More than 40 percent of adults have received the second dose. At present, vaccinations for adults in the second dose are progressing rapidly,” says Anna Scherleitner , THL’s specialist .
A total of more than 5.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccination have already been given.
“A good number of coronavirus vaccines will arrive in Finland in August. It now appears that about 310,000 doses of vaccine are given each week, ”says Scherleitner.
