The Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands Government has already administered 39,335 vaccines against COVID-19, of the 44,040 received to date, which represents the 89.31 percent of the total doses received. These figures include those inoculated to users and workers of the social health centers that have already concluded with the first dose and to the staff of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS) that make up group 2 of the Vaccination Strategy against COVID-19 in Spain.

Vaccination with the first dose of group 1, made up of 17,086 users and workers of social health centers, it was completed last Thursday, reaching a vaccination rate of 97.87 percent.

Once this round of administration of first doses has been completed, tomorrow, Sunday, the 17th, all the islands will begin to administer the second dose to the people who make up group 1 and who received the first at the end of December, since tomorrow will be 21 days from the first inoculation.

From the SCS it is ensured that the vaccines are guaranteed to be able to undertake the process of administering the second dose to the entire group 1 vaccination.

The target population is still vaccinated in this group, but due to the high vaccination rates registered to date, it is estimated that the rate of contraindication or rejection of the vaccine is very low among this group.
