80% of adult population vaccinated by first dose by today

By today, Sunday 20th June 2021, 80% of the Maltese adult population is expected to be vaccinated by at least the first dose. Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne announced that as of Saturday 19th June, 621,674 doses were administered, of which 350,092 were first doses.

282,709 people have been fully vaccinated, with only 29 positive cases as of the writing of this article. This marks the lowest number of active cases ever reported since July of 2021. Vaccine certificates are also being issued as Malta reached herd immunity on 24th May 2021 after 70% of the population received its first dose. The vaccine rollout continues as measures start to ease depending on the epidemiological situation of the island.
