The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) reported that everyone in Malta aged over 60 has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Malta is also the only European country to have administered at least one jab to people aged 60 and above. 99.1% of the 60 to 69 age group, all those between ages 70 and 79 and 96.1% of over 80s were fully vaccinated. The group with the lowest rate of vaccinations has been the 25 to 45 cohort. 70.1% were fully vaccinated and 68.1% received at least one dose.
The 50 to 59 age group was 86.4% fully vaccinated, whereas 71.5% of those aged 18 to 25 have been fully jabbed. In terms of those aged 12 and above, 60% have received at least one dose but the data is still fully unavailable. Most new cases of the virus are being reported to non-residents and unvaccinated people as Malta experiences a new surge in infections.
