A total of 72.2 percent of the population is now considered fully vaccinated. That is a total of 4.2 million citizens.
Currently, vaccines are being offered to all persons who have reached the age of 12 years.
SSI calculates the proportion of vaccinated in relation to the entire population, because they want to assess how close Denmark is to herd immunity.
Read here how things are progressing with the different vaccination groups:
* Groups 1-9:
Vaccine groups 1-9 include citizens over the age of 65, health professionals, the particularly vulnerable and their relatives.
