Abstract. COVID-19 vaccination in Romania. A spatial approach. The study analyzes the distribution of settlements which benefit of vaccination centers in Romania and evaluates the influence of the distance as a possible factor impacting the share of the vaccinated population. There have been identified six spatial proximity classes (A to F) to the localities that have at least one vaccination centers; the distribution of the localities in relation to these proximity classes is analyzed. The assessment shows that most of the settlements are located in the spatial proximity class of 10 to 20 km, whereas 82% of the localities are positioned in the range of 0 up to 20 km.

Key-Words: COVID-19, vaccination, spatial analysis, network, Romania.
