STA, 23 August 2021 - More than 50% of Slovenians aged over 18 have been fully vaccinated and 55% have received the first shot of a coronavirus vaccine, the latest official figures show.
Figures from Cepimose.si, the official vaccination portal, show more than 868,000 fully vaccinated and almost 950,000 having received the first shot as of Monday.
In the overall population, the percentages are 42% and 46%, respectively.
Slovenia lags the best performers in Europe, but the pace of vaccination finally appears to be inching up after declining throughout the summer.
Slightly over 34,000 shots were delivered last week, almost a tenth more than in the week before.
But this is still far from the peak of the vaccination campaign, in early June, when well over 100,000 shots were delivered a week.
