Mass vaccination centers in Latvia deliver disappointing figures

A total of 1,735 people were vaccinated on Sunday, at six vaccination centers were up and running throughout the country.

The figure is the total for all six centers, not an average per center, and is about 1,000 fewer when compared to Saturday, or the first day these vaccination centers began their work.

The total is well below the vaccination numbers achieved on some days before the large-scale centers opened.

Health Minister said that the launch of large vaccination centers during the Easter holidays was intended as an experiment to test their technical readiness.

Though additional invitations to get vaccinated were sent to several vaccination groups, the lack of public transport services provided over the holiday weekend, particularly away from the capital, is likely to have reduced the ability of senior citizens and others to actually attend vaccination centers.
