One Third of Icelanders Fully Vaccinated
At present, 62.5 percent of Icelanders aged 16 and older, or 184,619 people, have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, mbl.is reports. That number includes 98,882 people who have been fully vaccinated, that is, 33.5 percent of Icelanders aged 16 and older, and 85,737 who have received only one dose of two.
A total of 2.2 percent of Icelanders aged 16 and older have antibodies for COVID-19.
By the end of last week, 66 percent of women, aged 16 and older, had received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, compared with 51 percent of men. Almost all Icelanders aged 80 and older have been fully vaccinated.
Among people aged 50-59, as well as among those aged 60-69, 40.84 percent have been fully vaccinated, while 44.42 and 52.41 have received one dose, respectively. Among those aged 70-79, 44.2 percent have been fully vaccinated, while 53.4 percent have received one dose.
Most of the people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine are 50-79 years old, and they were vaccinated in late April or early May. Many people in this age group must, therefore, wait 12 weeks until they get the second dose, meaning that they won’t be fully vaccinated until late July.
Those who received the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine must wait three weeks to get the second dose, while those who received vaccine from Moderna need to wait four weeks. Meanwhile, the vaccine from Janssen requires one dose only.
