Additional coronavirus vaccination sessions will be held in Valga and Ida-Viru counties without pre-registration this week.

Last week vaccination sessions took place in Lasnamäe and Narva without registration and were popular. The government's vaccination workgroup believes additional events are needed to increase the uptake of vaccinations.

Marek Seer, head of the vaccination organization working group, told ERR: "Vaccination centers for large-scale vaccination continue, but we are seeing a decline in the number of people who are motivated to get vaccinated - 52 percent of the adult population have received the vaccine and 20 percent say they do not intend to get vaccinated."

He said people who have not been vaccinated must be the priority and that different solutions need to be tested.

"It is important to cooperate with local governments that know the specifics and needs of their region and people best, as well as with family doctors," Seer said.

It is likely more vaccination events will take place around the country in the coming months. 

Ida-Viru County has the lowest vaccination coverage rate at 34.99 percent and Valga County's is 48.49 percent. The majority of other counties are approaching, or have passed, 60 percent. More data can be viewed on the Health Board's website.
