Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 13.22 million vaccine doses have been administered as of January 22nd, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 4.55 million people who have received at least one vaccination (82.3 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 3.08 million people (55.8 percent).
4.36 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Finland (= 79.0 percent).

Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Finland is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 3.6 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 21,100 physicians in Finland, there are about 3.81 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality of major known diseases can be reduced to an above-average extent. For example, only about 10 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
