Almost 67 percent of the Finnish population has received the first dose of coronary vaccine. There are now just under 3.7 million taking the first dose, health officials report.
“The particularly good news is that vaccination coverage for 16- to 19-year-olds has exceeded 60 percent today. As autumn approaches and schools start, the good news is that young age groups are also taking vaccinations actively,” says Anna Scherleitner, THL’s specialist doctor.
More than two million doses of the vaccine have now been given. Less than 37 percent of the population has received the full vaccination series, i.e. both doses of the vaccine.
Coronavirus vaccinations are also offered in some municipalities without an appointment. Instructions for booking an appointment or information on whether a municipality can receive vaccination without an appointment can be obtained by following the municipality’s website, press releases and other communications.
