More than 1 million people in Costa Rica have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, health authorities reported this week.
The official tracker shows 1.66 million vaccines have been administered in Costa Rica. That comprises 1.01 million first doses and 646,300 second doses, and it corresponds to 31.13 jabs per 100 residents.
The Presidency says 1.2 million vaccine doses have been administered to people 58 years of age and older. Of these, 693,358 correspond to first doses and 540,458 to second doses.
The Caja has also administered 192,403 doses to Group 3 — people ages 12 and older with at least one risk factor. And earlier this week, the country began vaccinating Group 4, which includes teachers and other essential workers.
