After nearly a month-long hiatus of not posting updates on the Covid-19 vaccination numbers, the Health Protection Agency (HPA) posted its latest statistics on Monday.

The public health authority revealed that 54 more vaccine doses were administered between June 11 – July 1.

As such, healthcare workers administered 19 first doses, 27 second doses and eight booster doses.

No second booster doses were administered in the reporting period.

Statistics indicate that the total number of first doses administered nationwide currently sits at 399,390 with this development, with 385,255 people having completed both doses so far.

This means that 14,135 people are awaiting second doses of vaccine currently.

This development has also pushed the total number of booster doses administered across Maldives to 167,756.

So far, 0.35 percent of the eligible population has received two booster doses, the total sitting at 1,573.

Of the eligible population to receive vaccine doses in the Maldives, 88.18 percent has completed the first dose, while 85.07 percent has completed both doses and 37.05 percent has received booster doses.

Further, HPA revealed that 0.17 percent of the eligible population among children has completed first doses.

The incumbent administration launched the “Covid-19 Dhifaau” inoculation drive on 1 February 2021.
