In total, 6,567,309 doses have been applied, of which 3,751,251 correspond to first doses and 2,798,296 to second doses.

As of November 1, 72.66% of the population (5,163,021 based on actuarial projections by the CCSS) has been vaccinated with a first dose and 54.2% now count with a full scheme.

Another way of looking at the numbers, 88% of the targeted population (4,274,344 or 83% of the total population 12 years of age and older) are now with the first dose and 66% fully vaccinated.

At this rate, it is expected that herd immunity will be reached before the end of the year.

This is how the application of vaccines against Covid-19 is distributed in the Costa Rican population, according to age:

  • Between 40 and 57 years: 3.1 million doses applied
  • Between 20 and 39 years: 2.4 million vaccines applied
  • 58 years and older: 1.5 million recorded doses
  • Between 12 and 19 years: 654 thousand vaccinations applied
