The communities have administered 611,767 doses of any of the COVID-19 vaccines in the last 24 hours, with which Spain beats a new mark of doses injected in a single day. In total, 21,683,707 vaccines have been given since the campaign began in late December.
Vaccination of people between 50 and 59 years begins with the impulse of Janssen and doubts about AstraZeneca
According to the latest report from the Ministry of Health, about 7 million people have the complete vaccination schedule (two doses with Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or AstraZeneca or a Janssen prick, the only single-dose antidote approved so far), a 14 , 7% of the population. In addition, about 15 million people (14,911,306) have received at least one dose, 31.4% of the population.
With the doses administered today, the vaccination rate increases again: the average of the last week is 376,511 doses per day, which implies that, if this rate is maintained, 70% of the population would have the complete schedule in only four months more. In this way, the objective set by the Government would be fulfilled, which is to do it before the end of the summer.
By age group, Spain has already vaccinated 90% of those over 60 years of age with the first dose and 43.9% with the full regimen. Meanwhile, 98.2% of those over 80 years of age are fully immunized. Only about 50,000 people in that age group remain to receive the second injection.
The inoculation of the 70 to 79 group is also very advanced: more than 94% have the first dose and 54.6% are fully immunized, more than 2.1 million people. Of the group that follows, those aged 60 to 69, 80.7% received the first puncture, although only 7.2% had the complete pattern.
By communities, Asturias has 23.8% of the population fully immunized, followed by Castilla y León and Galicia, both with 21.8%. Likewise, Andalusia and the Valencian Community have immunized 100% of those over 80 years of age.
Although no community has finished vaccinating those over 60 years of age, many have already begun to inoculate the next age group: those born between 1962 and 1971. They can receive, as decided in the current strategy, the Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen vaccines, and they are being given mainly by Pfizer because it is the one with the most doses available but now it will be directed to them too Janssen.
