Approximately 50.9% of Macau’s population had been fully vaccinated as of October 28.

Macau’s Chief Executive (CE), Ho Iat Seng, said on Wednesday that he hopes that “as soon as possible” the city will achieve an 80% vaccination rate among its population, to make it easier for the local authorities to negotiate with “other regions, and revitalise the tourism sector”.

Speaking in a meeting with local officials in Hangzhou in mainland China, Mr Ho said the Macau vaccination rate had been rising and described that city as a “healthy and safe” destination that can attract more tourists from mainland China.

According to the October 28 press conference of Macau’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre, a total of 456,368 people in Macau had been vaccinated as of 4pm that day, of which 108,777 people have only received a first dose.

That meant approximately 50.9% of the city’s population had been fully vaccinated as of that date, up from 49.1% a week earlier. Macau had a population of 682,500 as of June 30, according to data from the city’s Statistics and Census Service.
