The chart below shows how many vaccines have been given in Sweden, as well as a breakdown by first and second dose. All vaccines currently being used in Sweden require two doses.
The agency reported that as of April 15th, 1,603,903 people had received at least one dose of the vaccine, of which 638,556 were fully vaccinated, according to reports from regions. That is equivalent to 19.6 and 7.7 percent of the adult population respectively.
The charts on this page are based on Public Health Agency weekly data gathered from the National Vaccination Register, which is currently only available for complete weeks. This means vaccinations carried out during the current week are not included.
According to the Public Health Agency, some data is updated only weekly and there may be a delay in reporting, so the true numbers of vaccinations given and people vaccinated is slightly higher. This also means that the data for completed weeks may change in the future as vaccinations are reported and back-dated.

Population count is based on the Swedish Population Register, so includes everyone who is registered as living in Sweden and over the age of 18.
It is not the goal to vaccinate 100 percent of the total population, because the vaccine is not currently recommended for children. Many people without a personnummer, and not included in the population register, will also be vaccinated in Sweden.
