Until 70% of the population reaches at least one dose, a few more days.
Portugal has already received nearly 13 million doses. So far, less than 1 in 3 Portuguese have yet to start the vaccination process: 3.3 million people. Most of them will not be vaccinated because they have not reached the appropriate age.

Lisbon and Vale do Tejo are the regions with the highest number of vaccinations and, at the same time, one of the regions with the lowest vaccination coverage: 51% of the population is fully vaccinated; and 65% with at least one dose. The Azores (61% of the population with at least one dose) and Madeira (50% of the population with a full vaccination schedule) also stand out with negative results.
With 68% of the vaccinated population, the North, Center and Alentejo are regions of the country where vaccination has progressed further.
VACCINATION BY REGION
On mainland Portugal
All over the world, one way to understand how fast vaccinations are being carried out in different countries is to observe the number of doses administered per 100 inhabitants.
COUNTRIES WITH THE LARGEST NUMBER OF INOCULATED DOSES
Total vaccinated doses per 100 inhabitants. In countries and territories with a population of more than 400 thousand people
Israel was in the lead early in the race. The government, which sought re-election in March, paid nearly double what the European Union paid for each dose, and it shares clinical information from citizens with the pharmaceutical company Pfizer on a weekly basis.
The United Arab Emirates, and in Europe, the UK also occupies enviable positions in the world rankings. In the countries of South America, Chile stands out from all the rest.
TOTAL DOSES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
Total inoculated doses per 100 inhabitants
Portugal has almost always been on par with the average of its 27 member states, but since early July it has accelerated its pace and is ahead of the reference average.… When comparing the number of doses vaccinated by European partners, Portugal ranks 5th between Spain and Germany. Malta stand out positively… With the smallest number of doses per capita – Bulgaria and Romania.
DOSES DISTRIBUTED IN PORTUGAL
Total per week by number of doses
In the European Union, vaccines are sent simultaneously to all Member States and the dose distribution is proportional to the number of inhabitants in each country. However, Member States are vaccinating at different rates. In Portugal, the vaccine Pfizer / BioNTech is the most widely represented and Janssen (J&J) has the least dose distribution.
DAILY INJECTION DOSES
Average daily value for the previous 7 days
Portugal buys over 32 million doses of various covid-19 vaccines… The purchase is part of an agreement between the European Union and six pharmaceutical companies. Currently there are four vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency and used in Portugal: BioNTech / Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen.
The European Medicines Agency oversees the development of the Curevax, Novavax and Spuntik V vaccines.
POPULATION WITH FULL VACCINE

Implementation of each country’s vaccination plans depends on operational and logistical issues.
Four vaccines are being introduced in the country: Moderna and Pfizer / BioNTech for all ages (28 days between two doses); Janssen for all men over 18 and women over 50 (single vaccine); and AstraZeneca for persons over 60 years of age (2 months between two doses).

Freight traffic through Lithuania to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad could resume within a few days. The information was disclosed to Reuters two sources familiar with the case say European authorities are seeking an understanding with Lithuania to resolve the dispute with Russia.
Since June 17, Lithuanian authorities have partially blocked the delivery of goods to the enclave, which mainly uses Lithuanian rail and road networks to transport goods.
The measure, justified by the fourth package of EU sanctions against Russia, affected the industrial sector, including the transportation of coal, metals and building materials, and became hotbed of tension with the Kremlin.
Russian leadership accuses Lithuania of “unprecedented” measures what kindconstitute a “violation of international law”. The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, guarantees that it does not apply any individual sanctions against Moscow, explaining this by the fact that it only implements the measures prescribed by Brussels.

According to Reuters sources, who wished to remain anonymous, negotiations are underway to free the territory from sanctions. One of them says that despite the West’s willingness to continue to support Ukraine, it is proving difficult to maintain restrictive sanctions.
Moscow is holding captive “thousands” of Ukrainians and “military personnel from all over the world who have volunteered” to defend Ukraine, Zelensky reminded in statements to the US television channel NBC.
The head of the Ukrainian state thanked for the support of volunteer fighters, whom he considers “heroes”, and confirmed that negotiations are underway to release those who were captured.
“Everyone understands that the war in Ukraine today is here on this earth, but tomorrow it can happen anywhere in Europe, and the “day after tomorrow” can happen in the United States,” the Ukrainian president said.
Thus, he added, “it would be absolutely fair to say that the war in Ukraine is already a war in Europe and the United States, only – territorially – it is happening here.”
Zelenskiy’s announcement came on the same day that the defense of British citizen Sean Pinner, who was sentenced to death in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine, announced that he had appealed the sentence.
Pinner, 48, was sentenced to death on June 9, along with fellow Briton Aiden Aislin, 28, and Moroccan citizen Braquim Saadoun, after being found guilty of participating in hostilities “as mercenaries” in support of Ukrainian forces.
Two Britons were captured by Russian forces during Moscow’s siege of the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov, Brakim Saadoun was taken prisoner in March.

The leaders of the three countries met on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Madrid.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has announced that Turkey has lifted its veto on Finland and Sweden joining the Atlantic Alliance after signing a memorandum that “answers Ankara’s concerns.”
“We have completed a very constructive meeting with the President [da Turquia, Recep Tayyip] Erdogan or President [da Finlândia, Sauli] Niinistö and the Prime Minister [da Suécia, Magdalena] Andersson, and I am pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement that paves the way for Sweden and Finland to join NATO,” Stoltenberg said.
The Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) spoke at a press conference at the Exhibition Park of Madrid, in the northeast of the Spanish capital, where the summit of the leaders of the North Atlantic Alliance is taking place.
Sweden and Finland applied to join NATO on May 18 after the Russian invasion of Ukraine ended the historic policy of neutrality.
