After a resinous start, Switzerland has overtaken its neighboring countries and even the USA when it comes to vaccination rates. Now it is stepping up another tooth – thanks to 2.5 million more doses.
Switzerland is currently vaccinating at record speed.
It is faster than the neighboring countries and the USA.
Switzerland expects 2.5 million more vaccine doses in June.
Nobody is leading Switzerland up when it comes to vaccinations. This is shown by current data from the Federal Office of Public Health BAG. Because in the past few weeks hThousands of vaccine doses have arrived, Switzerland is currently vaccinating at record speed. Faster than neighboring countries and even the US, which held the record just a few weeks ago.
This week alone, Switzerland administered 80,000 doses per day, which is equivalent to 0.9 doses per 100 inhabitants. A peak value that countries like Germany, Italy, France or England cannot reach, as the “SonntagsZeitung” writes. Only vaccination champions Israel and the USA administered more doses per day per head in February and April than we did this week. In total, around three million people in Switzerland have received at least one vaccine dose so far.
Like the Zline further reports, Switzerland will even be able to pick up the pace in the coming days. On Saturday evening, one million doses of the Moderna vaccine arrived in the camps of the army pharmacy – according to the BAG, this is the largest amount delivered in one day to date. Switzerland expects 2.5 million more vaccine doses in June.
The President of the Cantonal Doctors, Rudolf Hauri, therefore calls on the population to get vaccinated. So far, around a third of the Swiss have received just under three Millions of people, a first dose, 20 percent of the population are fully vaccinated. The epidemiological situation in Switzerland is therefore likely to relax further – despite the mutated virus variants.
